“Big Formats” – exhibition by Jenny Grant at Scandic Park

Jenny Grant, lets the female chracters in her art works take shape by putting layer upon layer to the canvas in what one could refer to as a – flow! Jenny works in mixed media and do not hesitate to add; wax, cloth, ink or paper along with acrylic to her paitings. The layers create a fulness to the canvas both in colours, details and intensify the expression of the female characters. As an observer you wonder; Who is this woman on the canvas? What is her story? What’s on her mind?

Listen to your heart

Jenny Grant loves working in big formats and at Scandic Park we are happy to be able to make space for one big painting ”Strength from within”. Walking a long the exhibition walls, you will also see some very small paitings but without lack of fulness, colours or details. To keep the flow in the art works regardless formats or media, is a challenge for any artist. Jenny Grant possesses this talent – granted to a very few.
Welcome!

Exhibition dates: November 28 – January 31
Address: Hotell Scandic Park, Karlavägen 43 Stockholm

Vernissage: October 18 at 6 pm – 8 pm

About the artist:
Sten Retlev recently became a Swedish citizen, but his Danish origin shines through in his paintings. The wild Nordic sea, the rounded hills, the warm yellow farming landscape or the grey coastal one. Now and then a white and frozen mountain scenery pops up on the canvas, but just for a short while. Powerful colours, surface, palette knife and the linen canvas are all significant features of Sten Retlev’s artistry.
Enjoy!

Jenny Grant live måleri

Live måleri av och med konstnären Jenny Grant på FoKo Art To Go i Sickla
Lördagen den 5/5  kl 14.00 spänner konstnären Jenny Grant upp sin linneduk på en av väggarna i vår utställningslokal i Sickla Monteringshall och målar live för FoKo publiken.
Adress: hörnet Järnvägsgatan-Smedjegatan Monteringshallen Sickla Köpkvarter / mitt för Sickla Galleria sido-entré gång mot Friskis & Svettis

Jenny skapar energifylld konst i en process där bilden växer fram medan hon målar. Hon arbetar i mixed media: akryl, papper, tyg, bläck, kol, vax m.m. Med lager på lager skapar hon en bild med djup och detaljer.  Jenny arbetar i stora format. Känslor styr motiven och är inspirationen till hennes verk. En dialog mellan bild och konstnär, som ofta resulterar i ett budskap eller en insikt.

Jenny har sin ateljé i Danderyd. Där håller hon workshops i måleri för både barn och vuxna. Att våga skapa och släppa fram kreativiteten, att släppa alla krav på resultat, att stänga av för kritik – både inre och yttre –  är Jennys motto. Jenny Grants konst finns representerad under FoKo Art To Go i Sickla Monteringshall 26/4-5/5
