A limited edition ‘signs of the zodiac’ Cancer print by Jenni Murphy. Jenny’s work is instantly recognisable thanks to its dream like qualities. By using light brushstrokes, deep colours and distortion of scale Jenni creates small intimate worlds where people are little more than a centimetre high and dominated by beautiful creatures and motifs that flutter and turn on the breeze : lanterns, moths, birds and dragonflies. Jenni’s ideas come from working in a reportage style, armed with a sketchbook she takes real people and situations filtering them through her imaginings and day dreams ending up with images that suggest there is something much bigger ‘out there’ than our perceived reality. Her originals are worked in acrylic on panel which has been under painted in order to intensify the colours , she slowly builds up the layers, scaling and repeating the leitmotifs until they evoke a sense of wonder and magic.
