Conversations with an Artist : Jenny Cho

Today in the gallery’s I got to speak to Jenny Cho about her art and some meanings of it.
Her art in the gallery dealt with themes of feminism, sexual identity, and repetition which to her translates into a form of meditation. Her dome piece was interesting, it was a paper mache dome with holes poked in it which made it look crafty. It also had sparkling red heels which she referenced to the wizard of oz, also she placed a mirror on the inside which you would see yourself in when trying to gaze into the paper mache, a representation of how when men gaze at woman in inappropriate ways it becomes more a representation of the man, I thought that was awesome. She also spoke about how she thought it was funny how in media female nipples seem to get blurred out although you can still see the breast, so to play around with that topic she had a tiny book placed inside the dome, and in that book was a series of pictures of different nipples, all shapes and kinds. The piece was beautiful and fragile looking but on the back was a faint lettering that read “slut”, from what I understood this was meant to show how women are seen as fragile and beautiful creatures but can also be labeled as a slut when their behavior is not deemed appropriate by society. Jenny is an Amazing artist that produces amazing work.FullSizeRender.jpg
