This Thursday see’s the private view of Fareham Art Open Winner, Jenny Tipton’s solo show: Projecting Nature’s Image at Sticks Nomadic Gallery in Fareham Shopping Centre.
Jenny’s work is based around video projections and photographic pieces that examine how we relate to the image and how its meaning is as transient as the snapshot in time it represents. She is most interested in images that are accessed by a large audience, be they a scenic view that is repeatedly shot by people’s cameras, or a piece of stock footage that can be taken by anyone to express a generic moment within a sequence. These images’ status are changed dependant on the way they are seen. The more photos of one scene you see, the more the photos become less about the image and more about a recording of time. The more you see different versions of footage of the same thing, the more the ability to grasp precisely what you are looking at escapes you.
All are welcome to attend the private view, Jenny will be giving a short artists talk about her work and we will also be presenting her with her trophy for winning the Fareham Art Open. This runs from 5:30pm – 7:30pm and there will be food and drink available
