Fall 2023 Artist Spotlight: Jenny Brillhart
Jenny Brillhart's studio practice often begins by organizing objects and imagery within found created spaces. She poses subjects that might be thought of as nothing into something-- objectifying the overlooked. Her painting routine, like the arranging of material, is a building process, material, repetitive and deliberate. The paintings absorb the geometry of her findings in the architecture from where they arise. Playing with space, matter, light, time and function, Jenny's paintings address philosophical issues of perception, beauty, and experience.
Jenny was born in 1972 to a crafty mother and en engineering father in Canterbury, New Hampshire. Her family lived near the historic Shaker Village, where she experienced the idea that function + process often = beauty. She graduated with a BA from Smith College, then studied at the Art Students' League in New York and recieved an MFA from the New York Academy of Art.
Jenny recently participated in group or solo shows at: The Zillman Museum, Bangor Maine; Kuckei + Kuckei Gallery, Berlin, Germany; Nina Johnson Gallery, Miami, Florida, Dowling Walsh Gallery, Rockland, Maine; Morgan Lehman Gallery, New York, NY; the CMCA, Rockland, Maine; Emerson Dorsch, Miami, FL; The Bakehouse, Miami, FL; the deCordova Museum, Lincoln Ma.; the History Museum, Miami, Florida; Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden Museum, Germany; PAMM and Dimensions Variable, Miami, Florida. Jenny lives and works in Blue Hill, Maine.
