Jen Ray (b. 1970) has spent the last several years living and working in Berlin, where she is represented by Wentrup gallery. Rayʼs work has been exhibited widely throughout Germany, including shows at Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, Kunstverein Kassel, and KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin.

 

Jen Ray’s drawings are militantly detailed filigrees of judicious line and color; the artist’s hand enunciates sparring Amazonian women, who inhabit decaying, semi-surrealist and strangely beautiful wastelandsIn addition to her works on paper, Ray orchestrates lavish and provocative performances in which the female protagonists of her drawings come to life.
