Jenny Pockley @ Beaux Arts Bath

10 April 2017 - 6 May 2017

Jenny Pockley’s vibrant contrast of shadow and colour offers hauntingly beautiful representations, which take on a hazy dreamlike quality. Vast skies swamp architectural landmarks in shrouds of rich, luminous colour, where shimmering light or beautifully smooth pigment applied over a gesso ground evoke the weight of rich emotional metaphor. Indeed, the artist’s poignant use of colour cultivates the viewer’s emotional investment in a city, using it to enliven buildings and views that have become signposts for memories and significant moments in one’s life. Individually, each work has a restricted colour palette, which allows the artist to focus on the emotive effects of a single hue through layering a combination of tones.  By abstracting the cityscape and focusing on these formal elements of light, colour, and line, Pockley creates serene and silent views where time is brought to a standstill, ultimately eliminating the hustle and bustle of the everyday city experience.
