Jenny McGee is a painter and printmaker exhibiting regularly in and around Bristol.
Her current work is primarily rooted in the landscape, but absorbed sensory information and topographical detail serve only as a starting point for each piece. As each work unfolds and goes through many changes, and the surface becomes more complex, any representation of an actual place becomes lost as a resolution is sought. Colour is a strong motivator, and juxtapositions of colour and how it describes space and reflects mood are important factors in the composition. Jenny hopes to create paintings which are, through the building up and scraping away of colour and the constantly reworked surface, rich, inviting and contemplative images that have a real connection to her intuitive responses to the physical world.
