The gallery will be open each Saturday for the duration of the exhibition from 12-5, with no need to book. Viewing at other times is by appointment only.

Artist Jeanette Barnes exhibits a selection of vibrant drawings and prints at Eleven Spitalfields Gallery from 4th March - 24th April 2015. Her work reflects her personal involvement with cities as an environment of excitement and construction where many generations of architecture rub shoulders and innovative change is encouraged.

Site Specific refers to Jeanette's fascination with those areas of London where buildings and movement create an energy which she aims to capture within a single image. Her commitment to this task began thirty years ago when as a student Jeanette moved to London from a small Lancarshire town to a bustling urban environment. That sense of wonder has somehow never left her.

To bring her vision to reality, many site visits, sketches and compositional experiments are needed to give depth and reality to her drawings. Jeanette collects a variety of viewpoints and particular incidents as source material for her large drawings, which evolve on a trial and error basis as potential solutions are instinctively explored, the final drawing going beyond mere typography to become a history of events.
