Bob Jenyns (1944-2015) was a pro­lific artist who prac­ticed for more than four decades, in which time he pro­duced an oeu­vre of sculp­tures, ta­pes­tries, prints, draw­ings and paint­ings. Jenyns’ work is dis­tinc­tive in style and re­mained rel­a­tively con­sis­tent through­out his ca­reer; marked by his dis­tinct, witty sense of hu­mour and aes­thetic, cel­e­bra­tion of ev­ery­day and fre­quent ref­er­ence to po­lit­i­cal, cul­tural and so­cial events, and per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence. This ex­hi­bi­tion in­cludes lith­o­graphs and sculp­tures that il­lus­trate Jenyns’ in­ter­ests in Folk, Naive and out­sider art.
