Venture Arts are delighted to announce the first solo show of drawings by young up and coming artist, Jennie Franklin from Manchester. The self-titled exhibition ‘Jennie Franklin: Well Done Good Draw,’ taking place at Bury Art Museum and Sculpture Centre, will feature a selection of drawings created over the last four years, some of which have never been publicly shown.

 

Franklin uses imagery and text inspired by posters, pop culture and emotions alongside simple shapes. She interprets these into intuitive compositions, which appear as an energetic stream of consciousness. Through delicate detailed pencil drawings, Franklin takes the viewer on a journey where much-loved children cartoon characters appear within a variety of visual narratives.
