PAINTER & SCULPTOR Jenny Verplanke
Archaic Characters The painter Jenny Verplanke touches on very deep layers of the subconscious in her pictures. She intentionally creates wrinkles, indentations and lacerations in her paintings, lending her works a sense of tension, which sticks in the viewers memory. She does not merely use colour for effect, but also employs the material itself. Her encounter with African culture has left a mark on Jenny Verplankes creations. Many of her works are reminiscent of the shields of the African warriors from antiquity, which can now be marvelled at in ethnological museums.
