After twenty years of working in graphic design and animation, Jenni Stringleman
has returned to her first love - working in oils.
Based in Auckland, New Zealand, she paints contemporary, bright expressionist florals, fresh, abstracted nudes, and portraits.
'For me, painting is an expression of joy. I simply love the act of applying oils to canvas, and this has led me to explore a heady mix of thick oils, semi-transparent washes of color, and high detail combined with gestural strokes.'
Jenni's recent pieces focus on the figure drawn from life in charcoal, erased, rotated and attached with brayers and solvents with slabs of flat color finally applied to obscure and reveal.
