Jen Gordon is a mixed media artist and sculptor, art administrator, public art facilitator, and writer based in Western North Carolina.
Jen received her B.A. in 2006 from Humboldt State University (HSU) in Arcata, CA. where she double majored in Art History and Studio Art with an emphasis in interdisciplinary art, a minor in German, and a certificate in museum and gallery practices.
Currently, she is a 1st Year MFA student at Western Carolina University. She works in mixed media, fiber, sculpture and installation combining all aspects of papermaking, printmaking and alternative process photography. Sculptural work materials include the use of natural, found and reclaimed objects, plastics, metals, wax, paper, acrylic paint and various textiles to create multiple layers and depth in each piece both figuratively and literally.
I am a photographer, a printmaker, a painter, a sculptor.
I am a collector of materials and explorer of process.
I am a human being sharing a sensory experience within the infinite Unknown.
