Jenny Keith-Hughes’ Animal Folk

Wednesday, November 24, 2010 · 7 Comments

Artist, Emily Klima introduced me to the work of Jenny Keith-Hughes whose show, Love and Squalor, is at the Prince George Ballroom in NYC through Nov. 29th. I’m particularly fond of Jenny’s animal paintings which are ambiguously narrative and both realist and whimsical. Keith-Hughes works in acrylic and beeswax, which gives her work a rich and unusual appearance.

    Aargh, love the one with the cat and the birds.
    Beeswax? How does she keep this from attracting dust? (Technical question, not mockery)
    Looks special, marvellous, looks …aargh…
    Thanks for sharing!

    They are really special, aren’t they? Seems like the technique is pretty labor-intensive but the effect is amazing! I think my fav is actually the first.
