Jennifer King confronts themes of femininity and power in contemporary life with oil on canvas. King's paintings create realities through a mixture of the imagined and the observed, featuring the female form.
Each figure she paints exudes feelings of uncertainty, unease, and disconnect, but also strength and heightened awareness while being constrained by her environment.
There exists a sense of longing and desire for each to break out of her confined space, to be strong, to be female, to be an individual, ignoring outside expectations; thus subtle expressions are contrasted with vibrant, colors; as a way of commanding attention.
