Jenny Watson lives and works in Brisbane, Australia where she is Adjunct Professor at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University. She has been exhibiting worldwide since 1973 and in 1993 represented Australia at the Venice Biennale. Her paintings, watercolours and drawings bring together the complex and humdrum elements of everyday life. Taking her Australian childhood as a main point of departure, her work exhibits an uncompromising examination of human nature and explore the boundaries of imagination. Rejecting literal depictions, her sketchy female archetypes convey the artist‚s alter-ego that encourage free association between image, language and memory.
