Pat Jenkins Exhibition
Pat Jenkins New Exhibition
Following her success at Grafton Regional Gallery in September, Pat Jenkins will exhibit her artworks at The Old Kirk.
She loves using the medium of charcoal, finding that using a stick of charcoal and a rubber gives great effects.
“I’ll be 88 in November …. the advantages of painting at age is you remember ‘learned information’ that can be used as inspiration.”
In this exhibition, Pat’s work tells a story about a place, the dirt under your feet and grass; you get to have an understanding of the places. Pat unpacks this: “Places are touchie/feelie. There is a certain way of using space in art, special places that don’t want to be in a line – they need to be higher or lower. You are looking at 3 or 4 things that are special in that painting. It’s all an experiment. Rain changes things in the bush to lovely warm browns and the light bounces off here and there.”
You can watch Pat’s technique and chat to her about her current artworks as she will be working on a new painting in The Old Kirk every day during the exhibition… or listen to Pat Jenkins Interview 30 second excerpt 13.10.2020.
And on some days she will be joined by her friends.
