EMERYVILLE - Jenny Bloomfield is a painter who lives and works out of Oakland, CA. She studied at the Hornsey School of Art and the Central School of Art and Design, London, and has been exhibiting regularly since the mid 1980s, including shows in San Francisco, Marfa, and London.
Her new series, Canyon Journals, is a collection of 25 pieces. It is a palpable display of the affectivity of brief, intimate moments that move through nature. She states that she first chose to paint because "the marks could be seen as a direct expression of an emotion: line, colour and movement, there to be read like a large book open on the wall.” She believes that “painting is rich in the qualities that reflect these needs. It is direct and responsive, private and flexible. It proposes solutions and then raises new questions that are better than those with which one started.”
We are also featuring one large painting in the upstairs gallery by David Simpson.
