Jenny Morse studied at Falmouth College of Art and the Royal College of Art. She now focuses on multi-layered one -off screenprinted paintings. Colour, mark-making, freedom of expression and experimentation are central to the work. What interests her most is how abstract work can convey personal meaning and evoke particular memories and reactions.

 

"The natural world re-interpreted through colour and mark making is what drives the work. Water and reflections, strong contrasts and movement of light and shadow, plants and sky, all these details can catch my eye and emerge in the work in an abstracted form. 

Once in the studio, the materials and process takes over.  I primarily use a screenprinting press to make the work . Every piece is unique, and built up over time, this gives me scope to explore each one individually and respond to it as I go along.

For me, the joy of using printmaking techniques is about their particular qualities, there are certain constraints and processes that can sometimes be arduous and frustrating, but unexpected things happen which add to the element of surprise and discovery, and push the work forward. in new ways. There is always the interplay of chance and control which keeps things fresh and interesting.”
