Jennifer Davis

Acertijos personales, colores pastel que al principio transmiten una idea “infantil”. Las pinturas de Jennifer Davis pueden ser todo, menos ingenuas.

Con base en Minnesota, se titula como licenciada en Bellas Artes en la Universidad del estado. Expone en su mayoría de manera local y crea sus piezas desde lo privado.
Inspirándose en colores que encuentra en la calle, va desarmando criaturas antropomórficas. Un desarrollo narrativo espontáneo e intuitivo.

En esta breve entrevista nos habla sobre la constante transformación de los animales en sus piezas y la combinación de colores:

I have always been an animal lover. I enjoy observing animal behavior and I am prone to anthropomorphize EVERYTHING. We can never really know what is going on inside an animal’s head so I find that they make perfect receptacles for projecting any kind of emotion or behavior I can imagine. I enjoy the surreal familiarity of putting animals into human scenarios.

When I create a character I always paint the eyes first because to me they are the “soul” of the painting. They are mirrors. It is for the viewer to decide/imagine what they see.

Texture and experimenting with color combinations in general.  I  love the meditative process of free-hand painting hundreds of tiny stripes or drawing millions of dots. I like to play with new tools to experiment with texture.  One of my favorite things to do is spend a long time on an obsessive process of detailing and then to completely paint over it. Then I use a blade to scrape some of the new layer away and reveal a hint of the pattern or a fresh pattern. I enjoy the repetitive labor, finding the bravery to paint over it and then the thrill of uncovering something fresh that I can not control.
