Jen Ahmad

  • Biography

    Jenny Ahmad is an emerging artist living in Canberra, where she often paints the nearby bushland and surrounding
    reserves and wilderness areas, exploring landscape in an intuitive way and abstracting plein air research and
    observation in the studio. Jenny's paintings teeter between abstraction and figuration, interested in how representation
    and memory is messed up by attachment and experience and investigate the way space and objects are skewed by
    emotion. Her use of paint swings between very visceral and physical mark-marking and hesitant drawing, with half-seen
    objects and mistakes, resulting in landscapes that are very atmospheric and evocative.

    In Jenny's landscapes, obscured images of familiar trees and rock-forms become unknown and exotic, and her erased
    and re-inscribed lines seem to wobble into sight, like a kaleidoscope vision giving glimpses of the real. Jenny's primal
    and energetic paintings, laced with delicate drawing and corrections, try to capture the experience of being in a place and
    create a poetic response and treatment of landscape that evokes the gaps and distortions of memory and physicality.
