Using earthenware clay and an array of vibrantly coloured glazes, Jenny Orchard creates extraordinary hybrid creatures, each one possessing a unique personality and exhibiting a complete defiance of convention. In this exhibition, Orchard’s imagination extends to the children of her original creatures, still strangers in a strange land. The figures exhibit mixed and confused identities - part plant, part human, part animal - and consequently will always be the outsider who never fits in. Orchard has exhibited widely in Australia and has participated in exhibitions in Japan, Germany, Italy and the United States.
