Jenny Brookman seeks to produce paintings that allow the viewer a moment of silence.
Although she wants her paintings to be emotive, Jenny's not looking to depict a particular emotion or personal sentiment but to engender a pure abstract response that transcends time, dimension and form.
Brookman's paintings allow the viewer to merge in to a 'field of vision' that frees the mind of objects, interruptions and daily cares. Similar to the experience of staring out to sea or the feeling of the warmth of the sun. She seeks to represent the sensation of 'Spiritual uplift' which nature commonly elicits, rather than to represent nature itself.
Brookman strives to achieve an intensity of response so that the viewer can leave themselves behind and enjoy a simple sense of joy and inner peace. Giving us an awareness that fosters our self esteem, rekindles our hopes and strengthens our present resolve.
Jenny Brookman attained a First class honours degree in painting from the Norwich School of Art and subsequently went on to achieve a painting Distinction from the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, London. Brookman has been painting professionally for over ten years and exhibits her work across the UK and Abroad. Her work is in numerous private collections.
