Testimonials

‘Jelly Green has already established herself as a young painter of distinction. In these new paintings she reveals the beauty and responds to the mystery of the rainforest but equally confronts the horror of its destruction’ - Maggi Hambling 2019

'...just oil paint doing what oil should: twisting itself into the contours of its subject, becoming  leaves, vines, fire and sky. There’s a desperate message behind Jelly’s work – we’re chopping the rainforest down at a terrifying rate — but even so the paintings feel like a celebration of the jungle in all its claustrophobic enormity. If you can, buy one. Otherwise go and soak up the richness of these paeans to the natural world.' - Spectator Life, 2019

'Jelly has creative energy in every fibre of her being. She is poised on the brink of everything with an incredible portfolio already behind her', Christie’s Magazine, 2013

'Jelly responds with great life-force to our native Suffolk landscape and some of its inhabitants. She is not afraid of paint but rather relishes it, and these encounters are full of discovery. Our eyes, therefore, are opened again to the ageless mystery and spirit of this place.' - Maggi Hambling 2012
