Lisa Jennings - about my work
My work is inspired by the ephemeral in life, and particularly that of nature.
I explore moments, habitats, patterns, behaviours and responses to, within
and between nature and human beings. I am focused in my current work
on the relationship of interdependancy between man and endangered species, through
exploring the history of, present experience and future of this
by looking at the zoo environment.
Installation work is the medium in which I mostly create, and this can and
does sometimes encompass drawings, printing, photography, sound, video
and sculptural work. I have been creating installations for just under
3 years, and this one is my 8th. I am always keeping an eye out for
interesting ways to explore spaces in art and have recently started to
explore how atmosphere and interaction is significant to the work
of an installation. This is what I carry forward in my practice, and
prepare work for the forthcoming Degree show.
