Jenny Pope Midlothian, United Kingdom
I am a sculptor based in Edinburgh. I trained at Edinburgh College of Art, BA in Ceramics and MA in Sculpture. I exhibit regularly in the UK, and am elected to the Royal British Society of Sculptors. Currently working on funded residency with Art Walk Projects and a solo show at the Upright Gallery, Edinburgh next year. I am also a Life Coach.
I am a visual artist producing work from small delicate objects to large-scale sculptural pieces. At the core of my practice is experimentation with the limits and possibilities of materials. I use the analogy of weathered objects to suggest the uncertainty and changes we face as human beings. Recent research has led towards the edge of textiles, creating personal sculptural spaces in response to the tension between comfortable containment and restraint. Currently I am creating tools using old objects exploring psychological change, to capture the intangible way in which we make decisions, inform personal changes and deal with anxiety.
