Jenny Mather

Explorations in various 2D media, working at integration between aesthetic structural composition with spiritual and emotional depths creating rhythmic inscapes and landscapes.

Welcome to my studio where paintings are born, formed and resolved, battles fought, ideas become reality; where paintings suggest the next line or colour; where creativity happens.

Moorlands surrounded my beginnings in Yorkshire and also now in Derbyshire; years in London at college; Nigeria – teaching and Sheffield – teaching and Art Therapy practice added techniques and depth.

Awe at the power of Creation and Creator gives underlying strength to my painting. Studying with Frank Auerbach I became aware of his emphasis on relationship to the subject and energy given to process.

As an Art Therapist an exploration of emotional depths informs my work; whether the subject is figurative or abstract I constantly seek integration between composition and content.

During Open Days my larger meditational paintings are displayed in St John’s Church opposite my studio (parking available on church driveway) – additional open days May 27/28/29.

Come, see, talk, enjoy
