Jennifer Anderson

Jennifer Anderson, a Scottish painter, combines clear-eyed examination with formidable illusionistic skill, producing sensitive, haunting portraits. Within tightly-cropped compositions, illuminated by unsparing mid-winter light, she conveys the real, weighty physicality of her subjects – friends, lovers, strangers – while at the same time hinting at the inaccessibility of their inner lives. Her work explores with candour the complexity of visual experience, enumerating the tiny shifts in colour that we read as warm skin, lank hair, or pale fabric. The blue-green tonality lends these works a very distinctive coolness, which somehow suits their theme: the artist's intense observation poised against her subjects' reserve.

Jennifer Anderson is one of Scotland's most promising young artists. In 1997 she graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College Dundee with a first class honours degree and since then has exhibited her work to great acclaim at both group and solo shows north and south of the border. In addition she has won several notable prizes and twice been selected to exhibit at the annual BP Portrait Exhibition.
