News Story

The Riverside Café Gallery is pleased to welcome Jenny Reynolds with an exhibition exploring the art of paper-cutting and collage. Jenny's work expresses lively ideas which are full of warmth and joy.

With imagery which is mostly figurative, this collection brings together Jenny’s fun and lively pictures and posters. The artworks are created using a mixture of materials, including beautiful handmade papers from the local art shop Pullingers, as well as more generic and scrap paper, mostly from The Guardian newspaper Saturday supplement with its matte texture and wonderfully vibrant colours.

Jenny Reynolds' relationship with paper stems back to her childhood. Growing up in Formby, West Lancashire, Jenny’s father worked in her grandfather's wallpaper and decorating business so Jenny was always surrounded by incredibly beautiful wallpaper pattern books, paper and paint, proving early inspiration for her creative process.

Jenny does not have a website or social media, she just makes it for the love it, so this is her way of sharing her amazing work.

Jenny's work is available to view from Thu 28 March to Thu 25 April 2024.
