“At the still point, there the dance is.”
—T. S. Eliot, “Four Quartets”

“If I were called on to define briefly the word 'art,'
I should call it the reproduction of what the senses perceive in nature,
seen through the veil of the soul.”

Jenny (Jennifer) Meehan
Fine Artist in Surrey/South West London
Using digital imagery, painting, drawing and writing, I take a primarily process-led approach, acting in response to the materials I am working with. It is a spirit and emotion led practice which I often describe as an articulation of fragmentary experience. This expresses the core of my art-working well, as all I create is autobiographically rooted and expressionistic. It acts as a kind of "re-membering"; a way of bringing things together, and making sense of life.
"Brokenness into Beauty"
My interest in a contemplative way of life means that I view my art work as a tool which enables the viewer to connect with their own emotions, giving space in a busy world for imagination and connection. Working with abstraction provides an opportunity for openness, allowing the viewer to determine their own path into my work, and this is coloured by their own experience and memory, unique to them.
Digital images of my paintings are numerous, and it's quick and easy to obtain a licence for use (see end of page for more details).
My artworking is bound up in Christ centred spirituality which is an integral part of my own life journey.

Selected by a wide range of judges in open submission exhibitions, her work appeals to the aesthetic and emotional discernment of many, and has been displayed in many galleries. These include the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London and the Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, West Sussex.
Jenny Meehan's work has been included in several academic projects and and publications including "Speaking Out - Women Recovering from the Trauma of Violence" by Nicole Fayard in 2014 and the ongoing "Recovery" Exhibition project - Institute Of Mental Health/City Arts, Nottingham University, also in 2014. While her romantic, lyrical, expressionistic, abstract paintings offer a contemplative space free from cares and concerns, other strands of her practice engage with subjects ranging from violence, trauma recovery, and themes arising from her own experience of psychoanalysis/psychotherapy.
