JENNY AHMAD

Jenny Ahmad is an emerging artist whose visceral and excited paintings are interested in the tension
and dialectic between abstraction and figuration and the moment where representation is messed up
by memory.

Jenny's paintings explore how attachment transfigures objects and space and her
charged brushwork and misshapen drawing tries to express felt subjectivity through psychological
colour and tries to communicate a phenomenological experience of spaces invested with emotion
and mistakes.

Her images shimmer between the real and the remembered, with the wonky problems
of distortion and affection, and are all about the gaps and glimpses beyond the ordinary.
