About Dismantling. Jenny Davis 2013
In creating my artwork I use various processes. By physically dismantling objects and clothing then reassembling them into something else, my intention is to reconstruct the meaning, or purpose of an object, from its earlier meaning and appearance.

Starting out primarily as an abstract painter and sculptor, Jenny’s arts practice has evolved and crosses over into many areas and disciplines. Recycling and reusing items in her work is very important. Stuff that usually goes into landfills and gleaned from the streets of Melbourne and Paris, or wherever she travels. Street litter, food packaging, advertising materials and all kind of paper ephemera are collected and saved for this purpose.
