Assistant Professor and Associate Chair of Cross-Disciplinary Art Practices, Jennifer Long is directing Project 31‘s auction proceeds from her work to the Photography Program Special Projects Fund.
Jennifer Long’s interest in the experiences of women, and the limited representations in which they are depicted, spurs her practice and forms a lineage from her earliest work through to her current series, Intertwine. Long’s artistic practice explores issues of doubt, vulnerability, perceived ideals, and communication within the context of interpersonal relationships.
These lens-based works draw inspiration from the quiet moments and rituals of everyday life. The resulting artworks deal with themes ranging from community to motherhood from a Feminist perspective. Intertwine expands her interest in themes of family and acknowledging the multitude of experiences within parenting.
“For the past fifteen years, my artistic practice has explored issues of doubt, vulnerability, perceived ideals, and communication within the context of interpersonal relationships. Working with constructed narratives and a Feminist lens I describe the emotions and quiet moments of everyday life. Touch, gesture and gaze all play significant roles as conduits of conscious and unconscious modes of communication.”
