“I am a visual listener and storyteller. I explore identity through individual experience and cultures. My work strives to embrace and promote fellow creatives, communities and local organizations.”
Over the course of the next two months, each artist for the public art show RACE AND REVOLUTION will be featured as part of an artist profile series. Photographer and videographer JEN PAINTER kicks off the series. As the week progresses we will learn more about her creative process and perspective.
I have asked each of the nine artists to answer a series of questions in order to understand what motivates and inspires them to create works that tackle challenging issues around identity, community, race, social justice, etc.
