Jenny Perry & Edmund Currie

Theme / concept        African Women

Jenny Perry
Fibre Art Piece            African Women

After working for the Red Cross in the Belgian Congo, in 1959-60, my father returned to Canada to paint many of the African people he had met there. My work in fabric (above) is a representation of one of those paintings of the daily life of African women.
Painting by Edmund Currie, Jenny's father.

The people and culture of Africa influenced my father’s work greatly. This painting of a Congolese woman is one of many featuring the women and their daily lives.
Edmund Currie passed away in 1981.
