jen mann

This is the stunning work of Toronto based painter Jen Mann. I’ve written about her before, but every now and then I like to swing by her site to see what she’s been up to. THIS. All of these paintings were part of her Fall 2016 show, titled “Sweet Nothing”, at Cordesa Fine Art in LA. Not only do I love all her work, I love her current artist statement too:

“In the society of “me”, where we document ourselves like celebrities and share our lives online for everyone, the self is a prevalent, and important topic to our generation. Our identities are curated like our online profiles to reflect only the parts of ourselves we chose to keep alive. Who am I? Who are you? What does my life mean? Why am I alive? Mann’s work aims to address these very illusive questions, and explore, but not necessarily answer all of them.”

Mission accomplished.

ps. I can never resist showing the scale of her work:
