Jenny Aitken, From River to Sea
Tarpey Gallery is proud to present ‘From River to Sea’ an exhibition of new work by Derbyshire based painter Jenny Aitken. Taking in scenes from Cromford to Cornwall the subject matter meanders it’s way from Tributaries to the Sea, with an emphasis on exacting colour and tonal contrast to convey light and movement, Jenny has produced a stunning new collection of work which will be on display from 11th April - 16th May, 2015.
Jenny has been painting professionally since her graduation from Aberystwyth University in 1997. Her style has evolved throughout her career and continues to do so, with a recent turn towards Plein air work.
“Each painting is born from strong visual and emotional memories, sketches and images, and my love of photography informs the composition and light. I want to tell a story, and achieve that evocative sense of a place through movement, light and texture.”
