Woman Reclining In Her Garden
Jenny Southam works in low-fired terracotta which she decorates with slips and oxides. The figures are celebratory. They explore mythical and domestic themes, and are informed by the patterns and rituals we construct to keep our world sane and well-ordered. Each piece is a one-off, although Jenny will revisit certain subjects and themes. The decorative slips are used in an intuitive manner and echo the emotional rhythms of the pieces.
