BA (Hons) Fine Art
Wonder. Curiosity. Connection.
Three words which characterise the spirit of Jennifer Lovatt’s practice – communicating her personal relationship with creation. Using an expressive abstract painting style, she aspires to engage her audience with work which explores the sensory nature of surface, texture, space and colour merged with feelings of memory, time and location.
Her intuitive work evolves from daily inspiration experienced at her woodland home motivated by the forms and textures of the natural world and the cyclical rhythms of her environment. Paintings evolve through a process of experimentation with materials, exploring fluidity or texture of paint and the drawn line in combination with surface.
Recent awareness of the toxicity and environmental impact of commercial artist materials has led her to look at improving the materials used in her practice. She is currently exploring crafting her own paint and dyes, including the use of plant materials from her home location.
