Strange Beauties by Jen MannIllustration // Sunday, 24 Mar 2013
Jen Mann is a Canadian artist from Toronto, Ontario. Mann's dreamy, acrylic paintings are inspired by illusions and memories of her childhood, she experiments with a variety of different effects with color combinations and saturation to capture innocence and beauty. "I am fascinated by the subconscious, the soul, identity, and the way they interact to form meaning and beauty, or nonsense everything and nothing. I am inspired by existentialism, history, language, and nature. In my newest series of works I challenge limitations to acceptable beauty. Limitations are death to creativity".
