The depth of relief

Jenine Marsh on the paintings of Jennifer Carvalho for Liste Showtime 2021

The paintings of Jennifer Carvalho are of small spaces and unknown times. The close-cropped depictions of ruins and relief sculpture, statues and flowers belie context. While an initial impression might be of careful, tenderly rendered representations of iconic and idyllic beauty, Carvalho’s worlds slowly reveal themselves to be strangely claustrophobic.
