JENNIFER JEANNELLE received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics from Metropolitan State University and her Masters of Fine Arts in Sculpture & Installation from theArt Institute of Boston at Lesley University College of Art and Design. In addition to her own art practice, JEANNELLE is an artist with the Denver Collective Pangloss Gravitron and is also teaches art in the Denver area. Her work has been exhibited locally and nationally.
JEANNELLE describes her work as a collaboration with the Earth, harnessing the metaphoric energy of materials and exploring visual associations between art, science, technology and human development. Produced in series, her large-scale installations are versatile collections of natural and synthetic materials. Representing the transcendence of time: clay, concrete, plastic and glass symbolize permanence; plant life, rusty metal, wax and computer components signify impermanence. Historical and cultural research informs the conceptual elements of the work as she attempts to connect seemingly unrelated systems and structures of the earth to the transitory development of technology. Her understanding of these complex systems manifests through mimicking, abstracting, recreating and reinterpreting.
