Jennie is a photographer & artist who challenges the limits of photography. She does not view photography as a unitary medium, but one that can be utilised to produce innovative artistic works. Her work also uniquely considers visual aesthetics & the realisation of the subconscious by revealing the unseen.
Jennie’s photographic specialisms are abstract & portrait photography. Her abstract images are based on photographs taken of wood, stone, water & other surfaces. These images are then printed on non-traditional substrates (specifically metal, glass and silk). Jennie’s portrait photography is also abstract & printed on these substrates. In addition to this photography, she produces short films using time-lapse & hyper-lapse photographic techniques.
Jennie has a fascination with light, patterns & colour. She also investigates how the substrate used reacts with the ambient light to change the colours within an image. Jennie’s work harks back to the initial forms of printing photographs such as Daguerreotypes, Tintypes and Ambrotypes.
Jennie’s artistic influences include Post-Impressionism, Surrealism & Art Nouveau. Artists, whose processes, concepts & techniques are echoed in her work, are Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Salvador Dali & JMW Turner. Jennie’s photographic influences include Duane Michals, Bill Brandt & Ernst Haas. She is also influenced by the installation work of Lisa West, Brian Clarke, David Spriggs & Olafur Eliasson.
Film-wise, Jennie is inspired by the Visual Music work of Oskar Fishchinger, Jordan Belson & Norman McLaren plus the experimental work of Steina & Woody Vasulka.
All work is bespoke & printed to order or commission-based.
