Jenny Hutchinson’s work is informed by her love for drawing from life. Her recent work is inspired by time spent outside in the natural world, as well as the plants residing in her house, observing changes that come through the course of a day, as well as through the seasons. She says: “Each artwork draws inspiration from my passion for the beauty of the outdoors and plants. The selected color palette is informed by different times of the day and the lighting effect that impacts our apprehension of color. I avidly spend time outdoors watching the world slowly change around me. The plants drawn from my own household evolve too, throughout the year, and they have served as additional inspiration. The artworks mimic this interplay of encounters, observing something unfold and change… which is representative of the enthusiasm and curiosity I feel for these plants and places.”
