2015 Goldmark Gallery Catalogue
Following on from her extremely successful first show in 2012, Goldmark Gallery exhibited a new body of work by Jenny Grevatte Saturday 21st March, 2015. This catalogue was specially commissioned to accompany her one person show.
This exhibition featured paintings inspired by trips to Italy and Greece; ancient buildings, fields of sunflowers and people and their shadows. Other themes included swimmers and rock pools, subjects that have allowed her to develop transparent layers of colour exploring watery depths with a degree of abstraction. Also included are a new series of still life paintings, including treasures seen in Greek and Italian museums.

2012 Goldmark Gallery Catalogue
"Jenny’s pictures give pleasure to all who own them, surely one of the most important attributes of art." – Lillian Browse (‘The Duchess of Cork Street’) Art dealer and Historian
Jenny Grevatte grew up in Leicester and trained at De Montfort University. In 2010 she completed a Residency at Leicester’s New Walk Museum and Art Gallery where she had access to the hidden collection in the art stores for study and inspiration. This has taken her out of her comfort zone completely and she is working in new, expressive ways, painting figures and faces for the first time.
She builds layers of mixed media, often including collage, to create surfaces that entice the viewer to look time and time again. Today, her work is in demand in Britain and abroad with paintings in public collections including New Hall and Christ’s College, Cambridge; the National Museum of Johannesburg and the Saarland State Collection, Germany.
