Anima-Mundi is proud to present ‘Pneuma’, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Joy Wolfenden Brown.


‘Pneuma’ is Wolfenden Brown’s fifth solo exhibition at Anima-Mundi and reinforces and expands upon the artists’ intensely observed understanding of the human condition.

These paintings simultaneously confront and disarm the viewer, yet, as the title of the exhibition suggests, ‘Pneuma’ is brimming with a delicate breath of life, where the ritualistic process of making flows continuously from the artists' subconscious, as a visual reflection of her experience, emotion and perception. 

This collection of exquisitely intuitive, intimate small and larger scale oil painting is infused with renowned sensitivity to absorb the physical and emotional world that surrounds and precedes the present moment. Suggestions of strength combined with fragility, vulnerability and solitude rest beneath the ethereally layered and unmannered surface of each work. The body language often appears awkward, guarded, as if attempting to close the breach created through the wide eyed protagonist, offering a window in to the soul of the subject, the artist and in turn, ourselves.
