January Spotlight: Jennifer McNulty

December 28, 2017

 

 

Jennifer McNulty lives in Oak Park, Illinois and has been an OPAL Artist Member for about four years. Jen has just finished serving a three year term as the Oak Park Art League's Board President and now has more time for art making. She has been creating art for the past 6 years. The series of work she is sharing here is mixed media, photo prints and mosaic tiles.

 

Share a little about yourself, your ideas, and process. How did you approach your work? What motivates you as an artist? Are your passions or interests reflected in your work? 

 

My work explores the dichotomous relationship between perception and reality in both subject matter and presentation. I refer to my recent works as 3D Photo Mosaics, which were born from my love of genealogy paired with my interest in pop culture and history. These works combine the graphic beauty of photography with the sculptural quality of tiled mosaics. This marriage of methods give the art depth and engages the viewer by requiring them to get up close to see the small detailed photos and then step back to observe the compound image that is formed.
