Jenani Therone

Therone works with her subject in an intuitive process that embraces freedom and the organic development of the image. She endeavours to push the boundaries of what her camera can do and plays with elements of relative focus, allowing forms to meld in and out amidst the colour blur. Colours and structure  determine selection and she allows the illumination and camera to paint the images with light. Therone can spend days with lenses and lighting until a feeling starts to grow. Each limited edition print is painstakingly constructed in a multilayered analogue process that the artist has developed. This delivers a vibrant richness of colour and significantly contributes to the resonance of each piece: any editing is kept to a minimum - to enhance colours a little without changing what has been captured. To print, the artist searches through many papers, experimenting to compliment the vision in order to achieve the desired separations of the fiery tones.
