Jeanine Woollard was The Royal Standard’s Artist in Residency 2012.
Her work is in a constant dialogue with sculpture, recalling a nostalgia for art historical tropes and artisanal methods whilst utilising mass produced objects and imagers as a conduit for this romance. There are no bounds to what can be called working materials; any found thing or place has the potential to be monumental and part of its own high-octane opera. Her photographs are often the documentation of sets that are assembled from the carefully hashed together detritus. Held together by composition rather than structure, this found imagery is so disposable and mass-produced, yet this is somehow its strength.
