Exhibition Overview

Inspired by microbiology, Janetta Napp begins her works by assembling small hand-size sculptures made from found objects. She then paints the still-life models into an imagined environment. Her fascination with laboratories and natural history collections has led to a personal classification system, noted in the titles. Napp is also fascinated by change and movement. “I enjoy creating forms," says the artist, "finding and searching for images, a visible language of things not yet seen.”
