Texas Biennial 2017 Roadtrip
Excerpt from Leslie Moody Castro Road trip writing:
“Since the next visit required a drive back to one of the mid-cities in rush hour traffic to talk with young artist Jennifer Thompson whose Biennial submission of collages intrigued me.
Jennifer is a young artist and part of a new satellite A&M Campus in Commerce. It was another moment that I was grateful that the Biennial offered the opportunity to meet artists I didn't know. Jennifer takes images from antique life magazines and collages them to bend the definition of the "American" life the magazine was selling, and the amount of study that Jennifer put into her technique proved that she was constantly making and exploring her technique further. We talked about the history of control through images in the United States, how definitions of an american dream were further reinforced by mass production of magazines like Life.”
VoyageDallas contacted me to promote Texas Female Artists & Designers. I’m working toward promoting female artists and designers. More details to come.
