Solo Show

Jenny Wiggins` empathy with her source material: maps and fragments of writing provide the starting point for an exploration that is contingent in part on history, memory and lived experience.
From these starting points, the work emerges; a narrative of a journey that mediates between the representational and the abstract. Self imposed grids are used to provide an initial pictorial structure, but it is the artist’s seizure of the unexpected visual incidents in the process of making that gives the work its authority and depth.

Solo Show

The scarred landscape of eroded surface, the delicate tendrils of paint, the contradiction of depth-at times paper thin at others built up and solid- secure an imaginative space for contemplation.
In the map pieces, hung to float off the wall, the surface becomes a continual presence unfettered by depth or frame. By way of contrast, the poem series, are mounted and framed, catalogued and preserved like rare specimens in an esoteric collection. In both cases this is painting that offers a tender and, at times, melancholic lyricism.

WORK IN PROGRESS

Commemoration

At present I am working on a proposal for ‘Custody’ a large group of bronze bumble bees mounted on metal poles 5 feet high with the idea of filling a meadow with these.

We commemorate our heroes in bronze but accept the cycles of plants insects as a given. John Ruskin felt plants were only here for our use or enjoyment; they had no agenda of their own.
Historically plants were collected and pressed, their actual body remains kept on the page albeit as a husk-like presence.

Comemmoration

Animals and insects were preserved stuffed, or suspended in formaldehyde. It was important to keep the ‘real’ in some way: drawings, even most accurate ones did not satisfy.
This work attempts to retain the ‘real’ object within the piece by sealing in resin the plants and insects I collect.
The new pieces use another form of “keeping’.

Dead bees and other insects are ossified in resin or cast in bronze and presented on metal supports.
