Jennifer A. Gray graduated cum laude from Pine Manor College in Boston, Massachusetts, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts. She completed an internship in scenic design at the American Repertory Theater at Harvard University.
Artist Jennifer Gray works with oils and mixed media as she explores subjects and objects that are deeply personal. Through a kind of “conversation” with the viewer, her work displays everyday objects and subjects, and even the human figure, in the way that she sees them.
In studying the human figure, Gray seeks to celebrate the quiet moments of existence. “The human form has been done again and again, and will continue to as long as we exist,” she explains, “I am greatly inspired by the old grainy sepia photographs. I wanted to capture the hazy painterly quality of the older cameras… the subject faces away because I want those to remain a universal symbol and not an individual’s portrait.”
