Jenny Robinson's ethereal "Glasshouse" recalls the beautiful Victorian structures that housed exotic, botanical wonders for visitors to promenade amongst; talking, sharing gossip, glances and whispers. The scale of the piece is commanding, yet the Japanese paper and indigo color give it lightness and mystery. The palm fronds and flax reference the exotic hothouse specimens from that period. Robinson's mastery of combining drypoint and watercolor while printing at a monumental scale is unsurpassed. The lovely, delicate Japanese Gampi paper, expertly seamed and backed with Sekishu, provides the necessary strength to make such a large-scale piece while maintaining the imagery's otherworldly beauty.
