This collection of 51 works explore ‘In Visibility’ and how the liberation of entering into the middle age phase of Jenny's life brings with it a focus on the interior workings of her psyche rather than on the outward physical. In this series Jenny grapples with societal perceptions of
what constitutes beauty and what is accepted and worthy to be seen as opposed to the truths that she is uncovering which render these societal perceptions irrelevant and powerless.
Through this series of exploration on canvas, she exposes the
vulnerable within herself and in so doing constructing an acceptance of who she is and what she stands for, whose opinions she is allowed and whose perceptions she rejects.
"I have chosen the baobab as muse and subject matter as well as the landscapes of vast and open fields and Kaapschehoop ruins – Adam’s Calendar or Africa’s Stonehenge - in a spirit of entering into the presence of the Ancients or the Elders to allow inherent truths and answers to be uncovered."
