Jenny Peterson

Jenny Peterson investigates the found object as printing plate. Broken road signs and scrap metal are re-presented as prints on paper. She is interested in investigating the history of the object’s surface as a way of responding to local surroundings. The broken signs have lost their function to direct us and through her interventions become a new collection of off-site markers. Scratched and dented metal surfaces are fixed as traces of memory onto soft paper. She mimics signage techniques by gathering and printing words about collecting, the souvenir and the journey.

Jenny lives and works in the small town of Boolarra in Gippsland, Victoria. She has been making and exhibiting works on paper for 30 years, including a survey show at Latrobe Regional Gallery, Morwell Surface, Fragment & Figment, in 2005. She received an Arts Development Grant from Arts Victoria in 2006 for a project called Site, Surface and Memory which focused on collecting and printing metal objects from charity shops in Victorian regional towns such as Yarram, Portland and Beechworth. Most recently Latrobe Regional Gallery presented her solo exhibition Find.Save.Keep. She is one of 6 finalists in the Linden Art Prize 2016 which runs from March to May at Linden New Art, St Kilda.

Her work is held in many public collections including the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Art Gallery of South Australia, State Library of Victoria, and several regional gallery and university collections. She was one of ten artists commissioned in 2015 to produce an edition of prints for the Print Council of Australia.
