self taught artist

my art has redefined the classic painting statement. this is a constant source of delight, opening up depth, range and texture. i express myself using materials as a total gestalt, creating images from the turmoil of my mind.

as a self taught artist i find myself struggling with “how to”. not having formal art training allows me to create, not just through “trial and error”, but without any preconceived notions of “how it must be done”. using my own techniques affords me the advantage of creating in innovative ways.

i work in many media: acrylic, watercolor, collage, pastel. i use objects and materials not just as a tool but often as the end result itself. i am a devotee of found objects and street trash. found objects, bones, teeth, blood, concrete, glass, other pieces of street trash find homes in my art. there is no object i can resist and bring to my studio, where it waits...a silent muse...for my next art piece.

i work dimensionally, on wood, often box-based.

i begin each piece with no preconception of what will occur. sometimes i start with a "color" (i feel like working in "red" and "blood" adorns my piece.). sometimes the piece begins with a particular "found object". or the shape of the wood or size of a box. i never know, from beginning to end, what i will give birth to and am often astounded at what my mind has produced.

i could call my art outsider, visionary, raw, collagist, folk, emerging ……but the word that best defines me and what I do is…….artist.

Whenever I visit Jennifer's stream I am fascinated. The combination of colours and expressions draws me in… takes me on a soul journey of this unique artist with high recognition value. Jennifer’s art is beyond ‘nice’…her art is thought provoking, disturbing in a positive sense and has beauty that comes from deep inside. Let yourself get into her art and you will also feel fragility and sensitivity behind her strong artistic expression. If you read her profile you see that she is a self taught artist and that fascinates more as it proves that every person can be an artist if only the soul gets the opportunity to speak. I am thankful for all her support and encouragement . I feel honored to call this heartful woman my friend. Thank you Jennifer...for sharing your genius and being you!

I want to celebrate JENNIFER! So before we start go pour yourself a glass of something fizzy. Jennifer says she does “art outside the edge.” That’s an understatement! She’s beyond “out there.” Her art is more like something from “off-world.” What a startlingly unique vision Jennifer has! Jennifer’s art is both outrageous and subtle. It’s all about ideas but beyond words; hard-hitting but loving; disorienting but familiar at the same time. How can any one person be so dynamically creative and productive? Jennifer paints, she does sculpture, she makes boxes, she creates collages. Does anyone need their chapel ceiling redone? She’ll do it! When Jennifer travels all of her senses are wide open. She brings home fantastic colors and shapes and sounds and smells and suitcases full of exotic jumbles of odd things that end up in her work. She wildly and unabashedly redefines the term “mixed media.” Jennifer is a terrific person, loving and caring, and a sweet friend. She responds to every comment and even every “fave” that people give her here on Flickr. Who among us can match that! Click on her set “my art” and visit the Musée de Jennifer! Take time to look at everything. You will be stunned! Don

Voilà un univers artistique qui vous mène aux portes de l'Afrique (par ses couleurs chatoyantes) et de l'ésotérisme tant les signes et symboles y sont présents. Jennifer Beinhacker est une artiste toujours en quête de nouvelles voies à explorer. Elle travaille aussi bien en à-plat qu'en 3 D. Ses acryliques et pastels sont riches en couleurs, des personnages à la fois agressifs et ludiques qui nous entrainent dans son univers inquiétant, parfois sanguinolant. Ses oeuvres en 3D sont préparées à l'aide de petits objets trouvés, chinés dans les brocantes ou qu'elle ramène de ses nombreux voyages et séjours en Afrique comme en Europe. Elle élabore également de nombreux collages ainsi que des toiles en techniques mixtes. Très généreuse avec celles et ceux qui lui demandent des renseignements, elle explique et permet au novice comme à l'initié d'avancer. Une artiste haute en couleurs, importante à mes yeux; à bientôt Jennifer ;-)

Jennifer has become a good friend, warm, funny, and charming.I always look forward to seeing her next artwork, as she is very prolific, and constantly creating wonderful interesting box art works. Jennifer, always responds to my inquiries,which means a lot to me.I feel that communication is key to the Soul of the artist.She truly is a Colorful Soul, and I am proud to say she is a true friend, and talented artist.
