Globalisation - Exploring the I and you in an era of change
25 Oct - 28 Nov, 2021.
Current ongoing work consists of new drawings, paintings, prints and sculpture.
These new bodies of work;
Small paintings on canvas board 25 x 30 cm feature bunkers floating adrift amidst a fantasy seaside-iconography of stripes and ice creams/lollies. The unlikely pairing of an over-sized kitsch ceramic ornament or a plastic model ice-lolly placed casually upon a bunker playfully emphasizes the limitations and often absurdity of WW11 camouflage whilst metaphorically undermining oppression and control.
Brutalist Ice-cream and Projectile sculptures - Paying homage to Guernsey’s German Occupation heritage, Jeni often works with cast-concrete methodology to create her sculptures, such as in her new series of ‘Brutalist ice-creams’. Adopting the make-do-and-mend creative resourcefulness of Channel-Islanders under German Occupation, Jeni combines found discarded objects collected from her daily walks in the city with her made objects. Re-purposing has developed from her life-choices into her arts practice and is also a comment against human greed and our throw-away society.
And a series of digital drawings and paintings for limited edition signed giclée prints.
These new works will first be exhibited in my forthcoming solo exhibition KIOSK at Coach House Galley, Guernsey, Channel Islands throughout July 2023 (more information to follow).
