Jenny Eadon now works mainly as an abstract painter after many years as a sculptor.
She travels a lot and many of her paintings show the impressions and memories associated with specific places visited. In her paintings she orders the jumbled mosaic of recollections by putting down the defining connotations of a place and expressing the particular colours, shapes, mood and sensations experienced there. Work also comes from an inner landscape of visual images invoked by reading poetry - the essence of the words, filtered through the artist, seek to find an equivalent on the canvas within the components of form, colour and space.
When painting, Jenny feels she is going on a journey of exploration by trying out what will work and what will happen with different conjunctions. Through a layering of colour and line, each painting builds a strata of connections, crossings and re-crossings - subsequent layers influenced or changed by traces underneath.
Jenny Eadon took a Fine Art Foundation at Berkshire College of Art in Maidenhead, had a year at Amersham College of Art, and then a four year BA Hons. in Fine Art at Reading University. Subsequently she took a Postgraduate Diploma, Artists in Schools, at Anglia University in Cambridge. In 2006 Jenny lived in San Francisco for six months where she did one semester of an MA in Advanced Abstract painting at the Academy of Art, since then she has concentrated on abstract painting.
Jenny’s influences have been and still are Matisse, Degas, David Smith, Eva Hesse, John Walker, Richar Diebenkorn and the other San Francisco Bay Area abstract expressionists, Howard Hodgkin and Roger Hilton, and many artist friends and colleagues.

Technology Eats Nostalgic or Vice Versa:
Remembering to Forget, Forgetting to Remember
Technology evokes technology to become anachronistic and obsolete. Thus, technology is slated for being obsolete. Nowadays, old-fashion machines are no longer object of desire for us; they are no longer seen as technology and indeed, are barely even seen as objects of recognition, and became just anachronistic or nostalgic. Therefore, they are now related to the past, no longer a thing of the present or future. However, if so, it seems that anachronism is about being in different ways a sort of paradoxical being in time. This is because everything of anachronism is ‘In’ the present, and ‘Of’ the present. Therefore, the paradoxical beings of anachronism belong to the present but are “not ‘there’ in” the present; they belong to the past but maybe to the future – the past is not just the past but it exists in the present – so the past has present.
