Artist Talk by Josie Jenkins
Venue: Corke Gallery
In 2013 Josie Jenkins won the Valeria Sykes Award at the New Lights Art Prize and in November 2014 she used the funding to undertake a 3 month residency at the Chinese European Art Center in Xiamen, China.
There Josie observed a dramatically changing landscape which presented Industrial developments on an incredible scale. Josie’s research lead her to the Yangshan Deep Water Port in Shanghai, the largest container port in the world, which subsequently featured in her large scale painting ‘Container Island’ currently on show at the Corke Art Gallery.
