Depicting the architecture of London's ever changing skyline and the construction behind it, Jeanette Barnes' vast energetic charcoal canvases have been exhibited widely including several times at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and Jerwood Drawing Prize.
Her most recent work has taken her further into the depths of time, moving away from the familiar contemporary London to an exploration into its history, hidden and preserved amongst the river beds of the Thames. Everyday artefacts, carefully selected for their resonance, from specific sites along the Thames, St Paulís, the Globe Theatre and Shad Thames, are reinterpreted. Their simplistic beauty highlighted and through integrating these objects into her work, Jeanette reconnects them with the present London.
