Jenifer Kent’s clay board pieces — stillness and speed

July 2015

“People say I must be crazy to make these,” says Jenifer Kent, whose obsessively precise drawings — some look like starbursts, others resemble quivering organisms — are on display at Dolby Chadwick. “I think if I didn’t make these, I would be crazy!” Kent works in ink on clay board, a surface covered with a thin layer of clay so that the line creates an indentation. “I love the way the lines hover on the surface,” she says.… read more

New American Paintings features Jenifer Kent

December 2014

Region: Pacific Coast Time and process are important to me, particularly in a world where everything moves so quickly. As a result, my drawings are iterative, meditative, and labored even when depicting speed and motion. I am interested in how things shift and grow, but also in interior movements experienced during moments of insight or inspiration. Each piece is drawn by hand—line by line—and takes multiple sittings to complete. I work in pen, making obsessively detailed marks that hover on a smooth white surface. These works resemble moments and flashes in time, with lines often growing from a central vanishing point to their logical conclusions, which may or may not be disrupted. They are grand flashes, explosions, or the most microscopic cells.… read more
