From the publisher: "Concentrating on the pivotal period of 1969-1970, this catalogue on Neil Jenney is a timely reconsideration of the central moment in the artist's career. He aimed to create a new form of realism, where narrative truth was found in the simple relationships of objects. Jenney's deceivingly simple imagery and textual juxtapositions convey the temporal coexistence of these objects in both the real and the imagined world."
