Jenny Scobel

Jenny Scobel makes portraits or figurative paintings of children and women that blend a scene of innocent-like faces with images that suggest an underlying dark or disturbing story. The subtle mixed messages creates a "disarming perspective" and "present a mature approach to creating complex and disarming works. Family tree of a young girl in the foreground, hands in her pockets and a disturbing background of a tree and running blood is one example. She often works in wax and graphite.


Scobel has shown her work in a number of solo and group exhibitions including Firecat Projects, Chicago, Illinois, Michel Soskine Gallery, Madrid, Spain, Galerie Kolb, Karlsruhe, Germany, Galerie der Stadt Backnang, Backnang Germany, and Thomas Erben Gallery, New York, among others.
