Milo Gallery is pleased to show the new work of Jennifer Martin.
Intrigued by the glossy and alluring nature of high fashion and beauty
advertising, and by society's embrace of this unattainable ideal, Martin
has responded with a series of paintings inspired by these images. She
simultaneously builds and deconstructs these icons of perfection through
the layering of paint, using the original photograph as the starting
point, but deviating from it with abandon. While some details from the
photograph are emulated, most others dissolve into chaotic and bold
abstraction. Her paintings are a journey away from the illusion of
perfection, allowing the viewer to see what's not supposed to be seen.

Jennifer Martin resides in London, where she was born and raised. She
holds not only a post graduate degree in fine art from St. Martin's, but
also an undergradute degree in psychology and neuroscience from the
University of Leeds. She has exhibited throughout London, and last year
completed a residency at Raid Projects in Los Angeles.
