For Jenny AK, it was the simple things that made up her environment like a particular pose, a striking use of colour or her contact with new cultures and environments during her travels. This was what made her carry a sketch book around with her from a young age and eventually pursue art classes at Racklöfska college in Järpen, Sweden over a period of 3 years. Over the past decade Jenny continued to experiment with acrylics on canvas and upon receiving a lot of encouragement by friends and family (among them her mother who is also an artist) she decided to pursue her passion on a full time basis. This led to the birth of ‘Light In Dark’, a 10 piece collection inspired by Caravaggio’s chiaroscuro technique which she developed over 14 months between Malta, Italy and Sweden.
There is no stopping for Jenny as she will be developing the LIGHT IN DARK style further by exploring new facets of the human form and experimenting with different colour combinations. She would also be working hard on learning new techniques that can help take her work to new directions and that may lead to exciting new projects.
The ‘Light In Dark’ collection is being exhibited at Cleland & Souchet at 14, Portomaso, St Julians, from 8th November to 31st December 2013, daily from 10am- 7pm. Entrance is free.
