“a beautiful conflation of Japanese minimalism and western abstraction” Neil Cameron The Scotsman
Jenny Smith is a contemporary artist based in Scotland, who has recently moved to the Isle of Lewis from Edinburgh. Her work investigates the relationship between process and concept, within the context of time, memory and place. Jenny’s work often invites us to question our definition of drawing. She currently draws using meditative, embodied, hand rendered processes that are aligned to her connection with the landscape she lives and works in. Please see Gallery page for images.
Jenny’s work is available for commission and exhibited and sold through a number of Galleries in the UK. Exhibiting nationally and internationally, Jenny has won numerous Awards (including the Royal Scottish Academy Award for Painting and Friends of the Royal Scottish Academy Artists Bursary). Her work is held in public and private collections, including acquisitions of her artist books by The Tate and National Galleries of Scotland. She has been a recipient of a Scottish Arts Council Creative Research and Development Award and has been shortlisted for the Jerwood Drawing Prize. Jenny is listed in the 34th edition of Who’s Who in Art
