ABOUT

Jen Gordon is a mixed media installation artist, 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 2nd Year MFA candidate at Western Carolina University. She works primarily with fiber, paper, clay, print processes, and public installations in conjunction with the natural processes of growth and decay. Her work emphasizes the elements of time and process.

 

The process is the work, and it illuminates the relationship between humans and their environment.

I am a photographer, printmaker, painter, sculptor, and artist.

I am an explorer, a collector, a maker, a philosopher, and archivist.

I am a human being having a sensory experience within the infinite unknown that is the Universe.
