‘Straight Talking Peer Education employs teenage parents to run courses in secondary schools about the realities of early parenthood. This achieves a reduction in teenage pregnancy rates and allows teenage parents to access employment.’ For further details please see their website  www.straighttalking.org   Hilary Pannack, the CEO,  will come on the Gala night with some of the peer educators and talk about their work.

The cornerHOUSE runs in an old Church Hall at the junction of Douglas Road and Ravenscar Road. The postal address is:

116 Douglas Road
Surbiton
Surrey
KT6 7SB

It is best to use public transport to get to the cornerHOUSE. Buses 281, 406 and 418 stop regularly at the end of Douglas Road (ask for the police station), bus K1 stops near the end of Ravenscar Road (ask for Tolworth Hospital) and bus 71 stops in the Hook Road (ask for Thornhill Road).

Please note that if you use your own car there is no dedicated parking at the cornerHOUSE and it is usually difficult to park nearby. The cornerHOUSE is in a residential area so please allow enough time to find a safe and sensible parking space which may be some distance away. Please park with consideration for our neighbours and avoid obstructing their access ways.

 

Court Farm Cafe

I also have several digital prints up at the Court Farm Cafe,  Court Farm Garden Centre, Tolworth for a couple of months.  These are reasonably priced at just £35 and £40 so would make great Christmas presents.  Having a bit of a sort out at home, as I need more space, so effectively selling these off at a rather reduced amount!

Hopefully it will be nice and busy, with folks getting their Christmas Trees, etc.  I could do with selling some things to help with the expenses of Christmas!

Yeah,  I like taking pictures of my paintings!

You might notice that it hasn’t changed that much, if at all!  The reason for this is that when I talk about a painting being “In Progress”  I consider the time I spend in contemplation/reflection/meditation (whatever your preferred word!) part of the process of the painting…Time spent waiting for paint to dry with acrylics is too, too short, and so I spend a lot of time looking at the paintings when they are dry.  I sometimes think that something is not finished when it ends up telling me that it is.  I sometimes find the opposite, and something calls out for attention several months later.  After about six months I can be more certain.  This painting lurked around and I thought it wasn’t finished, but it was.  The taking of close up images is helpful to me as it helps to freshen up my eyes and seeing of what is going on.  It sometimes helps me appreciate what a painting has to give me as it stands, which can be helpful, as it is very easy to rush forwards in a painting pushing it on to new things, when you haven’t actually seen what is there properly.

Unlike the other, these image show a bit more visible development!

I have colour corrected the image above so it is more like the original.  Images below haven’t had that treatment, and are therefore rather blue!

November Thoughts

We should all be hibernating!

I’ve been to an excellent one day course at the Mount Street Jesuit Centre on “Spirituality and Chronic Illness”.  It was very good and will add to my training in the art of spiritual direction no doubt.   Here are the details taken from the Mount Street Jesuit Centre website.

 

Chronic illnesses – conditions which are long term and for which there is no obvious cure, affect almost half the population. Including arthritis, COPD, depression, ME, fibromyalgia and many others, these conditions often leave us tongue-tied and frustrated, struggling to find a language of faith in which to respond.

This workshop seeks to create a space for exploration of the ways in which we can encounter God in the midst of long-term physical and emotional pain. We will explore the spiritual impact of chronic illness, ways of listening to the reality of the experience, and ask how we can engage with God in the midst of pain.

This interactive day is aimed at those with chronic illness, those who live alongside them, and those involved in spiritual direction and pastoral care of people impacted by these conditions.

About Edel McClean

Edel McClean is a trainer, facilitator and spiritual director. She currently works as a learning and development officer with the Methodist Church in the North West. She was previously a team member at Loyola Hall for almost seven years. She has a commitment to Ignatian spirituality, to demystifying prayer and to empowering people to embody change within the Church. She has been living with chronic illness for 15 years.”

It was a fun, lively and interesting day, which helped us to examine the way that we communicate and also to recognise some of the theological beliefs that we sometimes hold which, often distorted and mis-applied, can make offering deep, understanding and compassionate relations with those who experience chronic pain/illness less possible. There’s a lot more I could say about it, but rather pressed for time at this point!  I met some lovely people… I always enjoy my times at Mount Street Jesuit Centre!

Back to the hibernating…

I’m not currently painting, but organising and tidying.  Thinking ahead to next year, yes, already, as I mentally prepare for some future directions.  A lot of time spent reviewing the year’s work, and the directions that seemed to be indicating.

 

General Information on Jenny Meehan:

Artist’s Statement (sketchy overview, rather!)

Art, in my experience, is about exploration. I view mine as a natural and evolving process which is primarily to do with the emotions and spirit, though I do enjoy playing with concepts too. My Christian faith, relationships, and artistic contemplation and production are the main driving forces in my life.

Trees and plants, metal objects, the human figure, and many different types of man- made constructions, are subject matter I favour. I like to explore different styles of expression using a range of media; primarily paint, but also photography, poetry, and some sculpture. The brokenness of human experience fascinates me, but also the potential for growth and renewal. My work has a positive outlook, as I think that it is often through suffering, touched by God’s grace, that the beauty of the human soul is revealed. The idea of strength combined with vulnerability is particularly attractive to me.

My art is a sacramental practice, and the mystery of faith and its reality, which stretches beyond our human rational capacities, is something which interests me. I also see my work as an articulation of fragmentary experience; it’s how I make sense of the world.  Since 2010 I have put most of my creative energies into developing my skills with paint, which I love. Intensely.

I cannot believe we are into November…!

Enjoying the frost on the cobwebs, and the colours of the leaves which have fallen.

The studio tent is a bit too cold to use very much, though I am popping in and out of it to work on paintings already started.  I need to spend some time sorting out frames for the paintings carried out earlier in the year.

I can walk without a stick now for longer periods of time, though rather sad that my walking is not as it was.  I am exercising more and feeling healthier.  Loving Yoga and swimming more.  Turmeric tea each day.  Much improved from last month, and only very occasional pain from the osteoarthritis in my knee.

 

Artwork Sold for Charity! A Letter in Mind – The Art of Journey, Gallery@oxo  

I am very pleased that when I visited the Gallery the day after the private view (which I couldn’t make) my artwork contribution was sold!  I am very pleased as this has raised some money for a worthy cause!

I entered this piece which I hope will raise some money for this worthwhile cause:

 

“My Patch”

my patch canvas print jenny meehan websize

my patch canvas print jenny meehan websize

it is a 39 by 51 cm canvas print, varnished.

Here’s the text for it:

“My Patch/Face On” expresses that focused determination that people need when they confront difficult situations and face challenges in their lives. I very much enjoy experimenting with black and white graphic imagery, and in this piece the boundaries between the black and white areas suggested the ways in which conflict is sometimes a territorial matter, springing from our felt need to defend ourselves. There are aspects of us all, it seems, which are not so different from cats!

Jenny Meehan Biography
Human experience, emotion, and my own personal life journey form the centre of my work. The brokenness of human experience fascinates me, as well as the potential for growth and renewal. After a BA Honours (Literature) in 1994 and a PGCE in 1995 I taught in Primary Education. I’m now based in Chessington, Surrey and love my role in society as an artist, mother, and occasional art teacher. I would describe myself as a vocational artist, interested in psychology, spirituality, and emotional literacy.
I’ve had several solo exhibitions in community spaces, and exhibit widely across the UK. Painting, digital Imagery, writing and poetry make up the majority of my artistic practice, and you can see more of my work on my website: http://www.jamartlondon.com .

 

 

Thoughts on  Transformation

Transformation. Yes, the forming. The making of. I think of it in a positive way, as being a change from worse off to better, but I suppose it could equally be the other way around. My own understanding and way of approaching the word is centered around my own experience of the way faith can work in peoples lives, I think this is because my own personal faith/belief has been a source of great energy and power to me, however, I wouldn’t narrow this down to my own particular religious affiliation/understanding. I see transformation as related to potential, and to potency. Like the uncurled fern frond, or the bud about to open, it is a kind of positive expectancy of new life in my thinking. It is something I perceive as essential to creativity, maybe the essence of it? It is what we do when we take one thing, and see something else, something beyond that. So that is where the faith and vision come into play. Quite literally. Transformation has a sense of control, but also a sense of the unexpected. There is a natural process which happens, which guides and takes through, but the final form is completely different maybe to what we thought it would be. My life is a transformation, I cannot really narrow this down.

 

Oxshott Woods

One of my favourite places to walk is Oxshott Woods.   We used to go there every Sunday when I was a child, and its lovely to walk in the same places I did then, all these years later.  Here is a photo of my husband walking in the slightly snowy woods.

Interesting Reading:  

Another Benedictine, John Chapman, who was abbot of Downside in the Thirties, says: “The simplest way of making an act of attention to God, though without thinking of God, is by an act of inattention to everything else.” It is that letting go of our attachment to our thoughts and feelings, everything else, that is the essence of contemplative prayer. This is what it means to lose your life in order to find it, as Jesus says we should do: it is to let go of the controlling ego that likes to be at the centre in order to know our true centre, the Spirit of God within. And then nothing else is needed. At least for the time of prayer we hand everything over to God.

quote from Fr Robin Burgess is a member of parish team of Ealing Abbey, west London from article Leave behind words and enter God’s stillness

in the catholic herald 23RD OCTOBER 2009

We all begin by thinking of prayer as words, or maybe thoughts, that we address to God. It is my prayer – my words, my desires, my needs that I lay before God and ask him to meet for me. Much of our worship and the prayers we say continue to be like that, but if prayer stays at that level it remains selfcentred (not necessarily in a bad way). It may never become what all the great teachers say prayer is – not what we do, but the Spirit of God, of Christ, praying within us. It is the Spirit of God poured into our hearts, as St Paul says, that prays when we do not know how to pray with sighs too deep for words. This Spirit cries out, as Jesus does, abba (Father), and so enables us to know ourselves to be in the same relationship of loving intimacy with God as Jesus is.
To be a Christian is not so much a matter of believing certain things or behaving in certain ways. It includes those, but it is more basically a matter of being – of being in Christ who is our Way to the Father. So Christian prayer will be not our prayer, but our sharing in the prayer of Christ who knows himself to be in God and God in him. It is this prayer of presence to God present to us that is called contemplation, or pure prayer (or prayer of the heart).

 

More Photos…

I am sorting through past images, as I hope to use some to create a book with some of my poetry and photographic imagery in…This will come together in the future, but the groundwork involves sorting through several years of clicking away with my camera!

The image above was taken in West Dean College/House gardens.  The river is the River Lavant.  I love to see a thoughtfully composed garden, it is such a pleasure to see the living and vibrant natural forms working together.  I take great pleasure in my own garden also, though I have neglected it rather in the last couple of years.  However, even though slightly neglected, the structure is in place in such a way that it still falls together rather nicely!

Paintings

A few from the past, with some information/text.

All of the paintings here are the result of my own constant efforts to push forward creatively into the unknown. They are part of a contemplative practice which involves listening with the heart, and opening myself up to the Holy Spirit. Though I use years of experience gleaned in my practice as a painter (in terms of integrating formal aesthetic considerations and use of materials) each painting is always a step into the unknown.
Each painting is created in a piecemeal fashion, with sometimes several weeks and months between painting sessions, and sometimes even a day or two between each brush mark. During the time I am not applying the paint, I look to the painting and ask “What next?” Without any predetermined plan or concept, and with only my response to the mark which has gone before it, the painting becomes whatever it becomes. This process involves risk taking, and paintings change significantly as they progress, sometimes descending into a slough of despond, and sometimes bringing a completely unexpected direction into play and opening up in surprising ways. Towards the end of the painting process I find possible ideas present themselves, as I attempt to interpret what the painting means to myself, which is partially reflected in the title. You title will be your own.
For you, the viewer, a lot is required in encountering paintings which don’t clearly dictate how you should approach them. Without pictorial content to place you in the familiar material world and without a narrative, some might find themselves struggling to engage with such abstraction. Yet, it is enough just to look, and to look at what is before you, without needing to understand anything at all. The light changes these paintings as the day progresses. The light bounces off the variations in surface and texture, and the types of finishes and varnishes. The paintings are different in the morning, and different at the end of the day. They will be different to each person. Allow yourself the time to simply gaze.

Above “Pillar and Moon”….  This is based on a memory of Paul Nash’s painting “Pillar and Moon”  which made a deep impression on me.  I like many paintings by Paul Nash, but that particular one seems to haunt me.

Rocks by the Seaside, with some looking out to the sea…maybe those three finger prints like people, this is what emerged through this painting process.  I think some very happy memories from childhood come to bless me again… The happy ones did come from times by the coast, both at Bexhill and Combe Martin.  This painting I therefore titled “Cove”.

“Time Passes” This painting seems to have both present and past echoing through it…My walks through the rear access roads of Chessington and the playing in the alleys which ran along the backs of the houses where I lived in Teddington… Both are here in this painting, and past and present exist together.
