Jenny Gillam and Dieneke Jansen are artists with a shared interest in concepts of nature as a social construct and the mediated ways in which urban dwellers experience it. Their work asks viewers to re-evaluate the urban environment that they might otherwise navigate without question on a regular basis.

I’m a visual artist and writer, and for many years I have also worked in community arts. I make colourful, expressive drawings and sculptures that are interested in the creative process, different forms of embodiment, and sensory, intuitive experience of the world.
