Jennifer Hutchison recalibrates the still life in a contemporary context, questioning perceptions of beauty and the tradition of the still life as a female domain.
Her upcoming exhibition is a departure for Hutchison, whose earlier exhibitions turned to the palette of rural life, equally romantic and abstracted. Influenced by the Dutch Golden Age, these paintings are presented on dark fields, romantic and moody. She draws upon the impermanence of life – decay, beauty and bounty.
Hutchison graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art form the National Art School in 2017. She grew up in Regional NSW before moving to Sydney. A sense of open space and palette evocative of that dry rural landscape has become a foundation of her painting, both as a point of reference and point of departure.
