Jenny Parsons is an urban landscape painter working mostly in oil on canvas and chalk pastel. |
For Parsons a landscape painting is a place for the eye and mind to play, where the experience of the landscape and the act of painting hold equal importance.
Her work shows a fascination with vertical objects on the landscape: trees, buildings, lampposts and other structures; as well as the "drawings" on the land created by roads, paths and other demarcations. These elements suggest and in fact replace a human presence. The visual conversation between horizontal and vertical, mass and detail, solidity and fragility further explore the human relationship to the land.
