Jennie Jewitt Harris

  • 16 June — 19 July 2015 *on now

This exhibition shows work by Jennie Jewitt-Harris, created whilst 2014-2015 Watts Gallery Artist in Residence. Jennie works with drawing, stereoscopic photography, collage and sculpture and draws on her personal history in medicine and psychology as inspiration.

She focuses on the subject of time, relating to our personal stories and influences. Her interests are in the psychology of time, why we remember or forget experiences and the emotional triggers such as scale. Jennie uses weathered objects from woodland lane and the Watts Gallery Estate and draws inspiration from the Watts Collection such as Time Death and Judgement. Literature is also a starting point for many of her work. She uses these as a metaphor for the many influences we experience in our lives that shape our views and decisions.

Dadd was one of the most gifted artists of the early Victorian period, making his name with imaginative Shakespearean images. Despite later suffering from severe mental illness and spending much of his career in psychiatric hospitals, Dadd continued to create beautiful and haunting pictures including masterpieces such as The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke.
