Paintings from imagination are the mainstay of Jelly’s repertoire. They are usually painted in a realist manner and are laced with personal symbolism. Sometimes this is overtly stated, or is otherwise secreted in lush undergrowth, waiting to be discovered by the viewer. They have a sense of place with atmosphere playing an important part, especially in the imaginative work.
History and what has gone before are evoked by architectural fragments, which at times almost appear to litter the rich vegetation. In turn this seems to close around ancient pathways to the sea or the landscape beyond.
