Urban-landscape painter Jenny Parsons uses paint to describe her responses to the ways in which we inhabit the land. In her practice she seeks a connection with an urban and rural landscape that is under increasing political and ecological pressure. When painting the landscape, she senses the fragility of the earth, but also hopes for the constructive coexistence of people and biodiversity.
Jenny has exhibited extensively throughout South Africa and is represented in a number of local and international collections.
She studied fine art at Natal Technikon, and, in 2014, completed a postgraduate diploma at the University of Cape Town’s Michaelis School of Fine Art, graduating with distinction.
