2021 lithograph unique state image: 43x28cm, 56x38cm unframed
Tarry-Smith's artworks spring from the junction between the discipline of her chosen medium and the almost unconscious, meditative state that drives the image making process. Each line she draws deviates a little from the line that came before it, gradually morphing into a larger, contorted shape or occasionally interrupted by a void. The act of laying down lines and leaving spaces is an ongoing, intuitive process that leads Jennifer to being so immersed in her work she loses track of time and space. She has created a series of lithographs and linocuts; the fluidity of line and movement evident in her lithographs and the distortion of pattern can be seen in her linocuts.
