Jenna Krypell is a sculptor and painter from New York working in Brooklyn. Through studying design and painting at Syracuse University, College of Visual and Performing Arts, Jenna developed an extensive and diverse portfolio of multimedia works. Now, part of the emerging New York Art Scene, Jenna’s paintings and sculptures have been displayed in Art Basel Miami, HG Contemporary, Davidson Gallery, The World Trade Center, and other private events. Jenna’s recent features in The NY Times, Vice News and Newsday, are just some examples of how well her work is received in the NYC art world.
Jenna’s work is an interpretation of people’s everyday movements, reduced to an exploration of two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms. The pieces are created with the notion of displacement and variation based on the context in which they are presented. Each display and platform for the work allows for a unique reconstruction of the same elements. In this process, Jenna emphasizes the “journey.”
Jenna’s forms have many variations but generally share a commonality. In constructing these abstract forms, she evaluates life’s challenges and restrictions, therefore exploring the balance between choice and limitations. She impose clear restrictions on herself in the preliminary stages of her production, and synthesize her designs with materials such as MDF, hand dyed resins and paint.
These initial constraints she enforces on her work enables her to push toward other possible avenues that arrive towards the finishing stages. The final product of Jenna’s work is quite indiscernible in comparison to where she began, for it is in constant evolution.
Jenna’s work represents change; nothing is stagnant.
