Forever Never Seems That Long – Jeanette Gunnarsson, City & Guilds of London Art School
Oil, Spray paint, Textiles and Mixed Media on Canvas
100 x 200cm
I make process based abstract paintings which can be considered within the genre of expanded painting. The works on display are a diptych exploring notions of ephemerality and the experience of memories within spaces. Observing how these fade over time, ‘Forever Never Seems That Long’ is a reflection on interior spaces and ‘Never Ever Land’ explores exterior spaces and nature.
Through my use of materials I echo the interior with materials such as linen and textiles, and the exterior by using natural organic matter, having left the canvas out in the elements for a number of days.
