Millard and Lancaster is thrilled to welcome Jenny Holm for a month long exhibition of her recent works.
Jenny's paintings are full of allusions to ancient fairytales and myths, but although she has a distinct story to tell, she leaves it to the observer to decide how it should unfold.
She is interested in exploring the nature of relationships between people and also between people and animals, and how this affects the way they perceive their place in the world.
Some of her paintings are autobiographical, while others are inspired by the stories she read as a child in the battered but beautifully illustrated books she inherited from her parents and grandparents.
After graduating in graphic design at the University of Northumbria and completing a P.G.C.E in Art at Leeds Metropolitan University, Jenny taught for a couple of years before moving to the South of France, where she lived for most of the seventies and eighties. The special quality of the light in the region together with her discovery of the works of Balthus had a lasting effect on how she developed as a painter.
Since returning to the UK she has worked as a community artist in various settings including schools, galleries and museums as well as exhibiting regularly in galleries throughout the Northeast.
Her work is represented in private collections in Britain, Canada, Denmark, France and Sweden.
