Featured Artist | Jennifer Wagner

June 6, 2023

In Jennifer Wagner's artistic practice, the manipulation of shadow, blur, and reflection is the central focus. Her mixed media approach, using plaster, acrylic paste, and powdered pigment, produces marks that resemble classic impressionism more than modern expressionism. By creating an active form from a control mechanism, Wagner reveals her visual idiom: "Creating freedom from control and randomness from organization". Each form she creates serves as an alter ego of the artist's inner self. The patterns in her work are inspired by old-world geometric decoration, often borrowing from designs such as quilts, kaleidoscopes, and mandalas.
