Jennifer Walden Icons of the North 2012
The Inuit Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of works by Jennifer Walden. Jennifer’s distinctive style explores Northern life through people, wildlife and topography. Her contemporary expressionistic paintings are rich in texture and vibrant colour. String and rope are blended with acrylic media to create the deep and dynamic three dimensional relief that is her signature.
"I am an artist who is inspired by my immediate environment. The north is a place of endless beauty with a raw and wild side to it. I try to capture that in my art by using vivid colours and dynamic texture. What drives me is trying to capture a mood or a feeling in paint. The subjects of the paintings become a vehicle to express an emotion. Living in the north gives me an endless pool of inspiration to draw from. The landscape is harsh, raw and stunning. It lends itself perfectly to the raw emotion I try to infuse in my work."
