Jenna Gribbon’s paintings of nudes pay homage to the moment when light touches the skin. Her lush brush strokes capture her friends, son and girlfriend in intimate portraits. Her work carefully examines the implications and responsibilities of looking through what she calls a ‘scopophilic feedback loop’. Gribbon’s paintings of those closest to her vividly capture instants of pure joie de vivre. Her work has been exhibited widely in the USA, Germany, UK, South Korea, Norway, Finland and Switzerland.
Jenna Gribbon has a MFA from Hunter College. She was born in 1978 in Knoxville, USA, and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
