Warrington artist Jenny Drinkwater’s sensational exhibition is attracting widespread attention and praise. This new solo show ‘MADE IN para:dise’ comprises colourful and vibrant paintings of her greatest inspiration: nature and the landscape.
The large-scale abstract paintings and collages on display reveal a flux of beauty and imagination at the heart of paradise – but is it real Jenny asks: “Nature can often remind one of paradise. But is paradise a real or imagined environment which only ties into our thoughts on idealism”.
Influenced by Abstract Expressionism, Jenny’s paintings explore nature through gestural mark making – each canvas is instilled with depth, colour and drama. The more dimensional aspects of her landscapes embrace an uncontainable spontaneous approach, as seen in this show, where the work moves off the canvas to create an intriguing installation.
