Jenny Hirst

Jenny lives and works from her studio in Alderley Edge, Cheshire. She has been exhibiting and selling her work in galleries in Manchester, Cheshire, Derbyshire, Wales and the Lake District.  She has also exhibited at the Manchester Art Fair in 2007 and Battersea Art Fair in May 2008.  In addition she exhibits with a group of Cheshire artists “Art off the Edge”.  She says of her work:
" I am interested in rural and urban landscape and particularly the influence of manmade structures and buildings on the natural landscape.  I aim to capture the essence of a place – an emotional response rather than an accurate representation.  Thus my paintings, which begin from a photograph, sketch or a memory often take on a life of their own led by the medium and the method of applying the paint. ..I have been influenced by painters such as John Piper, Scottish artist Barbara Rae and Welsh artist David Tress and the great painter Turner who said “A painting is principally an expressive arrangement of primary materials”.  This seems to sum up perfectly how I feel about my work."
