Jenny Green sees her sculptures as ‘drawings in space’ evoking mood and motion. Typically, her works are abstract yet they’re often influenced by the figure. While the media she uses (steel, bronze and resin) may be industrial, her sculptures are light and airy. Using lines, curves, shapes and colour she aims to capture a moment, a movement, a feeling.
With a BFA in Sculpture from the National Art School, Jenny has been sculpting for over 20 years. She holds annual solo exhibitions and regularly exhibits in group shows. Jenny’s sculptures vary from the larger scale (at 2-3 metres) to the smaller, works that suit homes or offices and can be enjoyed indoors or outdoors.
Jenny has been a finalist in numerous prizes including the Ravenswood Australian Women’s Art Prize, North Sydney Art Prize, Northern Beaches Art Prize, University of Western Sydney Sculpture Award, Hornsby Art Prize, Tom Bass Prize for Figurative Sculpture, Harbour Sculpture and Sculpture in the Vineyards.
Jenny sat on the Board of the National Art School from 2015-2018 and was President of the Sculptors Society from 2007-2012. The University of NSW awarded her an Alumni Award for Arts & Culture in 2016.
Jenny’s work also features in public spaces: for example, Fraction of the Whole at the University of NSW and Solitude in Double Bay’s Guilfoyle Park, part of the Woollahra Public Art Trust’s collection.
