Jeopardy Series

The Jeopardy Series is a result of artist residencies at the London Zoological Society and the ACME International Residency Program in East London. The Zoological archive was a perfect venue to research my interest in colonial natural history. Jeopardy explores found imagery from the archives and the ancient menagerie at the Tower of London. Images of imprisoned women such as Anne Boleyn and Jane Grey led to contemporary connections with endangered species. I am intrigued by the “instinct” or “sixth sense” that animals possess, as well as their primordial sense of purity and beauty. An animal’s innate instinct for survival correlates to the intuitive process that is active in my painting process.

 

The finished works in the series are printed, collaged, drawn and sanded. Paint is poured, surfaces are waxed and carved to form hide-like tapestries on Indian Khadi paper and birch panel.
