FLOWING BETWEEN Ireland, Spain, and the Channel Islands, and combining ancient artist forms, with modern styles, this is the new exhibition by Philip Jenkinson.
Philip Jenkinson’s Entre Recuerdos (between memories ) is currently on show at the Ard Bia restaurant on Nimmo’s Pier. The works, which include oil paintings, wall sculptures, and modified mannequins, were created in studios in Dublin, Galway, Valencia, Asturias, and the Channel Islands.
Jenkinson’s collection of found objects and artefacts informs much of his work, as can be seen in his sculptures. Co-opting these lost items into the service of a new found purpose, the familiar is reborn, altered and given new stories to tell.
