Jennifer Marlow is a “Nova Scotia girl who likes sharp blades & the smell of wood.”
The maritime woodcarving tradition holds numerous attractions for her as an artist.
It embraces heritage, environment and art while demanding implicit trust between hand and eye, intricately linking the tactile with the aesthetic.
It also encourages improvisation, whether in style or practice, the uncertainty of outcome rich in promise and surprise.
Jennifer’s work may be viewed at www.jennifermarlow.com or at the Harvest Gallery in Wolfville and the Secord Gallery in Halifax.
