The solo exhibition by Threadneedle Prize 2014 winner Tina Jenkins opens at Mall Galleries on 30 March, exploring the theme of hysteria in a collection of striking new works. Last September Tina Jenkins was announced winner of The Threadneedle Prize 2014, one of the most prestigious art prizes in the UK awarded annually for figurative and representational art. Tina received £20,000 plus a solo exhibition at Mall Galleries.
The solo exhibition will include a number of her large ‘striking’ paintings, executed on plastic sheeting rather than canvas, and a collection of her smaller paintings done on top of pages from Bonham’s and Christie’s catalogues. Her works all explore the theme of Hysteria, and Jenkins describes her process of painting as a “hysterical act”, linking in with her PhD research in to Painting and Hysteria.
