Kitty Jenkins' paintings are built up through a series of layers and fragments and focus predominantly on the figure and its structural complexities. Within these works the human body is broken down and rebuilt and restructured. The resulting structures are constructed from a myriad array of references (figurative, organic and inanimate) and attempt to dissimilate the individual identity in favour of a fluid arrangement between figurative painting and abstraction.
These works are built up from fragments of people and environments. Through these abstracted figures she examines the boundaries between forms and explores the isolation of the figurative structure from surrounding elements.
