Exhibition: AHEAD OF HER TIME, A homage to Jenny McNulty 1942-2016

In an exhibition that showcases her pioneering paper reliefs, five women celebrate Jenny’s practice with their ceramic pieces.

Alison Gautrey | Valéria Nascimento | Lara Scobie | Tina Vlassopulos | Maria Woodjat

The exhibition features paper reliefs and mobiles from 4 series made between 2003 and 2015, all are hand-cut on white or cream paper, and a few also have local colour.  All celebrate and explore the reality of ‘Still’ Life’: over time they progress from austere 3 x 3 grids of pots seemingly suspended in space to the final exuberance of flowers bursting out from their background.

Exhibition: 1-23 Feb 2024 at Jaggedart
28 A Devonshire Street, London W1G 6PS (off Marylebone High Street)
