About Jen


Jen Stark was born in Miami, Florida in 1983 and received her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2005, majoring in fibers with a minor in animation. Her artwork mimics intricate patterns and colors found in nature while exploring ideas of replication and infinity. Although Stark is most recognized for her paper sculptures, she has explored a variety of media including wood, metal, paint, plexi and animation.

Stark has exhibited globally with major shows in NYC, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Thailand and Canada. Her work is included in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the West Collection, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale and MOCA Miami among others.

Jen explains her work by saying, “My work is inspired by the unseen potential of common things. The forms and concepts are inspired by the mysteries that lay at the bottom of the ocean and at the edges of the universe. The results resound with ideas of replication and infinity, often on a minute scale, echoing patterns and intelligent designs found in nature. Through the use of simple cutting techniques I strive to create beautifully complex structures that reveal how remarkable common materials can become. I hope to help everyone discover the simplicity of beauty and mystery through my work.”
