JEN p. HArris
(Blacksburg, Virginia. b. 1977 )
Harris invents morphological methods to construct paintings and installations. Influenced by object-oriented ontology, ecopoetics, Taoism, and aesthetic traditions ranging from non-objective painting to botanical illustration, she gives visual form to the experience of confronting uncertainty while living within a culture that insists upon the durability of existing structures.
Harris has exhibited nationally and is the recipient of numerous awards, including a 2012 NYFA Fellowship in Painting. She holds a BA in Studio Art from Yale, an MFA in Painting from Queens College CUNY. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
