Jenny Scobel’s works are executed in graphite and oil paint on prepared wooden panels or vellum. These portraits range from widely known figures such as Michelle Pfeiffer and Virginia Woolf, to completely anonymous women who have been cut out from printed media or photographs. The portrayed subjects seem however deformed because the proportions of head and body are not always compatible. The same model is often reintroduced in a slightly altering but ever prominent décor. These intimate backgrounds give the scene an unsettling and uncanny feeling, also because the figures and their environment seem to come from a different period of time. Scobel’s paintings allude to beauty and its underlying calamity. The image will never reveal its true story.
Jenny Scobel had several solo exhibitions in Europe and the USA, including the Molloy College Rockville Centre in New York, Galerie der Stadt Backnang, and the Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, amongst others.
In 2004, Scobel participated in the exhibition Sagt holde Frauen: 15 zeitgenossische Kunstlerinnen und das Medium Zeichnung at the Museum Fridericianum in Kassel. Other recent group exhibitions include Women Portraits at Overbeck Gesellschaft, Lübeck, Pleisterplekken at Museum Dr. Guislain in Ghent, Dangerous Woman DFN Gallery, New York and The Human Subject Art Gallery, Cleveland State University.
Jenny Scobel joined the gallery in 2002.
