Jennifer Chernecki is a Vancouver based artist and curator who works primarily in oil and acrylic painting and mixed media sculpture. She graduated from Emily Carr in 2008 and currently makes her home and studio in Vancouver’s booming Mount Pleasant neighborhood.
Jennifer’s interests lie in creating emotive portraits of humans and animals that conjure up a sense of intimacy and wonder, as if the viewer is stumbling upon a ritual or a selfless act. She works within nostalgia and popular culture with a strong emphasis on the natural world as seen in her complex studies of plants and animal species.
Some of her current themes include: visual design motifs from her childhood, Microutopic settings for animal friends, Vancouver based Hipsterama portraiture and the melding of the past, the present and the natural world. Technically, she employs a strong use of color as well as movement and is always aiming to create dynamic while serene compositions.
