Jennifer Smith’s work is an exuberant take on the female nude and female narratives. Her work interrogates the female body through a female lens, playfully incorporating contemporary scenes and historical depictions. In her application of paint, there is urgent, frenetic energy. This is probably what I enjoy most about these works- they are not overly concerned with ornate depictions, rather giving her figures a sense of empowerment and self-determination.
