Jenny Fox, Artist in Residence The Places In Between

Terryglass Arts Festival is delighted to host Jenny Fox as its first Artist in Residence. Born in Canada and brought up in Mayo, Jenny lives and works in Cloughjordan. A graduate of NCAD, her work is represented in several public and private collections at home and abroad. Much of Jenny’s inspiration for her work comes from rural landscapes. Her work centres on the feeling of belonging, the notions of physical space and place. “I am not trying to paint these places, they are never my subject, I am trying to express how I experience them.”

About her residency, Jenny says:

"My intention for this installation is to create two interlinked areas: an exhibition, containing finished paintings; and a re-creation of my studio - the engine room for my work - where my working practices will be exposed! My studio contains all you might expect: paintings at various stages, my notes, sketch pads - the blueprints for all my work - photographs, writing on the wall, collected objects of interest, hand cream and other bits and bobs. While working I always listen to either music or radio drama, so this soundtrack will also be present. As I will be in-situ, throughout the festival, audiences will be welcome to come in, look through my sketchpads etc. and ask me questions about my work."
