Jennifer Deppe Parker
My current series explores the way human beings see light and color. I believe the way in which we view these elements are influenced by deep-rooted memories, feelings and the things that surround us. Not necessarily the physical reality that we see, but pieces of our lives that inhabit our minds and affect our souls. I am inspired by sensory elements of experiences, the excitement of brilliant color, and seeing light on a different plain. I depict impossible abstract representations of the visual experience as well as a representation of a physical reality to portray how things are and how things should be. I want the viewer to be lost in awe of the intensity of the atmosphere that surrounds us.
Jennifer Deppe Parker was born and raised in New York City, where art consumed her life from a very young age. She received a bachelor’s degree in fine art from Boston University with special studies in graphic design and art history.
In her work, she explores the meaning of visual communication by combining her knowledge of design with her background in fine art. She presents images on an emotional level through researching the human response to events. The subjects that she depicts are ones that often have generated great public interest and curiosity. The work is shown from an emotional viewpoint rather than just a scientific or intellectual one. Her work combines attributes of feminism, surrealism, pop art, graphic design, and abstract expressionism, and is infused with psychological, scientific, and sexual content.
