About Jenny Riddle
A highlight of the 2012 exhibition will be the work of Feature Artist, Jenny Riddle. Jenny will showcase a series of landscape and Seaside paintings titled “Coast, Clouds and Conifers”.
Surrounded by coastlines and nestled in the rural hills makes the Peninsula rich with atmospheric inspiration. The light in this region has a European ambiance with its filtered light, changing weather and rich vegetation. The moods created from this light is captured in Riddle’s works with her signature atmospheric skies, layered movements and textured contrasts.
Her seascapes and landscapes are created from memory and the imagined, enabling Riddle to capture the emotional response rather than a literal representation. Evoking expression of beauty, power and solitude. Riddle studied under the late Howard Arkley and has been influenced by some of the greats in Turner and Constable.
Jenny is a regular exhibitor at Manyung Gallery. And has works held in national and international collections.
