Jenn Bakalar is a feminist visual and multi-media artist whose work deals with female physical and social identities. After graduating from SUNY Purchase College in 2009 with a BFA in Painting and Drawing and Minor in Art History, Bakalar spent time working and traveling on the West Coast and Europe before returning to New York. She works simultaneously in 2-D and 3-D media as well as performance, music and dance collaborations with other artists. In her current process, the dichotomy of creation relates to the innately female capabilities of reproduction as well as inverse destructive forces. Often autobiographical, Bakalar’s visual exploration of the feminine identity proposes the female force as a balance of positive and negative, creative and destructive. This can be seen in her accessories line made from upcycled and salvaged fabrics and materials. Current cultural and high fashion trends are a recurring source of content within Bakalar’s work. She currently lives in Brooklyn New York and makes her living tending bar. She teaches portfolio development to high school students every summer at Idyllwild Arts Academy.
