We're thrilled about the group of artists who are exhibiting together in our current show "Chromatic" and want to give you the opportunity to get to know them better! Here is an interview with Delaware-based abstract painter Jennifer Small, who was also featured in our inaugural exhibition 'Pilot'. She really brings an edgy, vibrant feel to the show and we're excited for you to learn more about her and her incredible artwork.
Jennifer Small is a Pennsylvania native who received a BFA in Painting and BS in Art Education from Millersville University in 2005 and MFA in Painting from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2012. She has exhibited her work in galleries and fairs in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, New York, Richmond, Savannah, and Chicago. Media features have included New American Paintings, Studio Visit Magazine, Studio Break Podcast, and various other blogs and online publications. Formerly a high school art educator in the Washington DC and Chicago areas, she now lives and work as a painter and visual designer in Wilmington, Delaware.
How has your work and studio practice evolved since you last exhibited with PxP Contemporary?
Since I last exhibited with PxP I have been experimenting with more painterly applications including transparent layers, gradients, and spray paint textures combined with the flat, hard-edge areas that have been present the last few years. I have also moved into a house in Delaware from an apartment in Chicago which has influenced the types of source material I have access to that inspires my work.
