JENNIFER CONTINI ENDERBY 2012
mixed media on canvas
Jennifer Contini Enderby’s mixed media works on canvas express a childlike inner essence, something that the artist terms “the joie de vivre of the deep heart's core.” Communicating her love for the city of New York in exuberant, vividly colorful works on canvas, Jennifer utilizes acrylics, metals, resins, plastics, marbles, maps and signs that she salvages from her urban environment. Presenting a veritably kaleidoscopic view into the artist’s unique imagination, these almost sculptural creations highlight the visceral connection between blank canvas and image-maker. Characterized by thickly applied paint and emotional force, the works seem to reach out to their audience. Recalling the merry mayhem of childhood through
their sheer tactility, Jennifer's use of text and
liberal doses of climactic color offer a rejuvenating balance of innocence and wisdom.
Born in Ohio, Jennifer Contini Enderby has lived in New York City since 1993.
