The 10th artist featured in our current exhibition – London Bridge OPEN 2 Boundaries – is Jenna Moore.
London Bridge Hotel is a former telephone exchange built in 1916 which is now surrounded by the equally stunning and evolving architecture of London Bridge. To reflect this contrast of historical and modern existing side-by-side, London Bridge Hotel’s General Manager, Julio Marques, has curated an exhibition which includes 20 different approaches to architecture using a myriad of methods including wood carving, oil paint on concrete, illustration, London’s pubs re-imagined, screen printing and painting on silk. The theme of the exhibit coincided with The London Festival of Architecture this summer.

Jenna Moore is a self-taught artist who creates stylised, impressionistic paintings of animals, landscapes and people, breaking down everything into lines and flat images. Her most recent abstract 2D representations are composed of shapes, frequently spirals, emphasised with black lines for definition.
Preferring a bright, vibrant palette, while often making heavy use of texturing, Jenna gives her work a 3D effect that you can actually feel. Jenna’s work in pen and ink is composed of small fragments which build up into the larger completed image; assembled like a jigsaw. As a young artist, Jenna developed her own style drawing in mosaics; dividing pages into segments and adding colours. These processes still influence her work as an adult, depicting a preference for defining black lines, embracing the colour.
London Bridge OPEN 2 – Over 100 artists submitted work for consideration for London Bridge OPEN 2 with 17 chosen for this second exhibit. OPEN 2 artworks are displayed throughout the public areas of the hotel and its adjoining Quarter Bar & Lounge, allowing potential buyers the opportunity to see an artwork in an environment more akin to a contemporary home. All OPEN art works can be purchased and the exhibition runs until December 2019.
