Jenny Brock – Artist

Artist Talk Reminder!

Tomorrow (Thursday) at 12:30, I will be doing a short lunchtime talk at Bath Artists’ Studios, as part of my exhibition. Please do come along if you are nearby – I will be talking about my practice and inspiration, and it’s a good chance to have a look around the gallery…



The Rivermade Podcast

As promised in my last post, here is a link to the podcast I made on Friday evening with Mulk Raj of Rivermade Films! In this episode, I discuss with Mulk about how paintings have inspired film, my working process, and some of our favourite scenes…


Opening Night of “Landscapes of Imagination”

Hello everyone! Apologies for my recent absence – I’ve been extremely busy over the last few days setting up my exhibition. As well as being my first solo exhibition, it is also the first time I have ever curated a show, and it’s been a great experience so far…

I have a total of 20 pieces – original canvases and giclee prints – displayed on the walls of the Roper Gallery, Bath Artists’ Studios, as well as a selection of smaller prints for sale. Here is a little snippet of what it looks like (with my hair matching rather well with “Ambiguous #2”!)


Last night was the private view, and it was a fantastic and quite surreal evening – lots of friends and relatives were there, as well as some other local artists, and everyone was very complimentary and interested in my paintings. There were also a lot of recurring themes which everyone interpreted from my work: Romanticism, ambiguity, the Sublime, abstract landscapes, and their relationship to my film and musical inspirations, as well as my favourite artists, such as John Martin and J.M.W. Turner…


The exhibition is now open to the public until 27th March, 12-5pm daily. I will be invigilating on most days, whilst also working on some illustrations. And this evening, I will be making a podcast with my talented filmmaker friend Mulk Raj of Rivermade Films, who is also making a short film to document my exhibition and some of my working process and creative ideas. So watch this space!

By the way, I have finally joined Instagram and am really enjoying it! I thought that now was an appropriate time to do so, so here is the link to my profile:

Getting Close!

It’s two weeks until ‘Landscapes of Imagination’ begins at Roper Gallery, Bath Artists’ Studios! I have been starting to publicise it as much as possible, as it’s my first solo exhibition. This has included putting up about 30 posters around town and university, which are at:

  • Green Park station
  • Local libraries
  • Good Buy Books
  • Minerva art shop
  • Little Theatre cinema
  • Bath Spa university
  • The Weston
  • The Royal Oak
  • Topping & Co. bookshop
  • Harvest
  • The Pig & Fiddle
  • The Raven
  • Boston Tea Party

Bath Spa is also advertising the exhibition on their social media, and I will also be running a facebook advert from tomorrow…

One of the posters is in very admirable company in Green Park station! I was so happy when I saw they had put it there! I am actually going to this Tears For Fears gig as well:

In rather good company!

Also, last night, I went to one of the Artbar events at The Raven pub in Bath. Artist Max Naylor was talking about his surreal, partly-imagined landscapes – I just love his work! Here are the links to his website and the Artbar blog. They also gave the opportunity for people to make announcements, so I gave a brief mention of my exhibition and handed out a few business cards.

First Painting of 2018!

Last week, the news and media was full of the rare supermoon which occurred a few nights ago, so I decided to do a painting called “The Whole of the Moon, which is inspired by all the images I saw. I have long been fascinated by the so-called “moon illusion,” which makes the moon appear much larger when it is close to the horizon. Next time there is a supermoon, I plan to go somewhere to see the illusion in all its glory.

Seeing as I have been busy preparing for my exhibition and artist talk, I have not made any new paintings for a few weeks and thought this would be an appropriate first one of 2018. I have also added it to my new 2018 gallery:

Posters For Exhibition

The posters I recently designed for my upcoming exhibition have arrived:


I always use Vistaprint to make business cards and other marketing material, as I find it to be easy to use with lots of creative freedom, and very prompt at arriving. Highly recommend!
