Artist Jen Stark works from the ground down. Her work is a collection of rainbow colored discourses on miscroscopic patterns in nature, and allow her audience the opportunity to stand at a literal gateway of her imagination. Layers of hand-cut foam-core and paper are stacked on top of each other to create a colorful break in reality (see “Sunken Sediment”). On the opposing end of the Miami born artist’s work, are explosive pieces that resemble sunken tornados of color reaching toward the audience, while some hang languid like melting ice cream, hypnotic liquids dripping down the bright white gallery walls.
Stark attended the Maryland Institute College of Art where she majored in Fibers with a minor in Animation. Her short animated videos help to create journeys through her colorful caverns and swirling montages of kaleidoscopic waveforms. Stark’s multi-layered wormholes leave you wanting more from the artist - not in a bad way, more in an “I want to dive into that hole and and never return” kind of way - hopefully soon we will all get a deeper glance into what lies on the other side of Jen Stark’s rabbit hole.
