Jennifer King

Jennifer KingJennifer King is an abstract artist who creates paintings and mixed media artworks. She was born in 1972; New Jersey, United States. She started drawing and painting at the age of 10, and won several art competitions as a child. She comes from a long line of artists and musicians, and was heavily influenced by her mother, who is also an artist. Her great grandfather’s stained glass pieces are still showing in many of the churches near Calabria, Italy.
Jennifer is mostly self-taught, but studied formally as an art major in high school and college. She has a great love for the arts and science, and combines both genres when creating her pieces. She spent 20 years as a Fire Fighter/Paramedic, and 10 years as a Registered Nurse prior to her endeavors as an artist. Much like medicine, she believes that art can heal people in many ways, and often incorporates her medical, science, and fireJennifer King service knowledge into the titles and bodies of her works. Jennifer commissions her work to private collectors, galleries, interior designers, health care facilities, and corporate art agencies. She also licenses her work for use on several different products. She currently resides in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois.
Art doesn’t have rules in my world. I choose to combine principles and themes of science, the mystical/spiritual realm, visual perception, and subconscious manifestations when creating my work. By applying abstract concepts, I try to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based on subjective associations that incite the viewer to further interpret my work. My paintings don’t always reference recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that interpretation becomes multifaceted. I strive to increase the dynamic between audience and artist by objectifying emotions and physical data; allowing the duality that develops through different observations and interpretation.
Jennifer KingImages arise in which the fragility and instability of our reality is questioned. This is a direct reflection of how I view life. I try to create intense personal moments by means of suggestion of what is known, and not known to be absolute. The ultimate goal is to lure the viewer in for further contemplation. I emphasize aesthetics, texture, form, composition, and contrast which results in being able to conclude one’s own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality of the subject or concept. If my art work can make people feel things, then my job is done.
