Jenny Honnert Abell: Pretty, Peculiar

Turner Carroll proudly presents a solo exhibition by California artist Jenny Honnert Abell. About the work, she says, “The collage work began in 1995 when I could no longer fight off the oppressive urge I felt to make pictures out of the harvest of my years of scavenging. A hunger to combine these images and textures lying all over my studio initially drove my imagination to create unintentional plant-like forms. As these “flowers” emerged, my own language of formality developed, and exploring my obsession for meticulous detail was being satisfied. The relentless seduction materials have on me found a worthy purpose.
“Jenny’s work is a part of the Art in Embassies program in Senegal, may be seen in art centers in California, and is on bottles from the prestigious Imagery Estates Wine artist series.
