“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.”
— Paul Cézanne
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 many academic projects and publications including "Speaking Out - Women Recovering from the Trauma of Violence" by Nicole Fayard and the ongoing "Recovery" Exhibition project - Institute Of Mental Health/City Arts, Nottingham University.
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.

Jenny (Jennifer) Meehan
Fine Artist in Surrey/South West London
With a process-led approach, I act in response to the materials I work with. It is a spirit and emotion led practice; an articulation of fragmentary experience. All I create is autobiographically rooted and expressionistic. My artworking acts as a kind of "re-membering"; a way of bringing things together.
"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).
