Artist Statement and Biography:
Jennybird’s work explores mystery, transformation and the sacred.
Existing between a waking and dream state, the archetypal anthropomorphic, is nature, fable and divinity Exemplified.
Taking inspiration from the symbol rich mythological and religious works of the Renaissance as well as classic fairy tales and day dreams these works attempt to weave together a landscape where newly discovered Saints, heroines and martyrs are explored, canonized and exalted. Animal bodied girls are the gate keepers as well as the key. Intuition holds the hand of mystery and endless possibility is born.
Hybrid creatures and organisms inhabit this landscape helping to uncover the natural progression in the growth cycle of the heart or what it might look like just below the skin or under the petticoats of extraordinary girls.
Jennybird’s work has been exhibited broadly in the US and Europe. Her work has been published in the Hi Fructose Box Edition Set 1, Ideafixa Greatest Hits, The Age of Feminine Drawing, several small publications as well as Hi Fructose, Inked Magazine, Juxtapoz, Raw Vision and Art Doll Quarterly magazines.
