About Beverley Jenkins
Focusing on nature and its strengths of light, vivid colour and texture, my paintings evoke the tranquil qualities of nature. Light plays on my thickly applied oils, which are sculpted in a neo-impressionist style, bringing the scenes on my canvasses to life. On close inspection, viewers are engaged in the purity of colour, and the succulent tactility evoked by the strokes of my palette knife. At a distance, the scene is revealed, and as the viewer moves, the paintings continually transform themselves as new colours are exposed at different angles. Under natural light, the paintings magically evolve throughout the day, as the shifting light plays with underlying tones, and the depth of the sculpted relief.
I have been developing my unique style for more than two decades, and my paintings have received accolades at solo and group shows, commissions, consignments of my work in galleries, and at auctions. My paintings belong to personal and corporate collections in Australia, Canada, China, Switzerland, the U.K., and the U.S.A. My Bluebell Forest was displayed at the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition in London, U.K. I was formally trained in Fine Art at University of Toronto, and Film and Photographic Arts at Ryerson University.
