JEST by Anne Hendrick will open at Talbot Gallery and Studios on Thursday 16th October 18.00-20.00, 2014 and runs until Saturday 8th November 2014.
Much of the inspiration for the work in Jest comes from filmic sources and iconic American imagery. This use of dramatic colour to enhance the viewer’s experience of the work is both a coy nod to melodrama and a deliberate manipulation of the visual context of a body of work.
