Nefertiti JenkinsNefertiti Jenkins explains how her works draw upon specific memories to evoke a vivid recollection, made even more urgent with the passing of time.
About the Artist
Born in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Nefertiti Jenkins (b. 1994) is a New Jersey-based painter. Jenkins takes on reflections of past experiences and memories as a way to find appreciation for the rarer moments in life. Choosing high chroma colors, skewed figures and quasi-surreal environments, Nefertiti's portrayal of her recollection through formal paint handling leads to an ambiguous and dream-like narrative.
