“A rising star on the global contemporary arts scene, her unique technique and her mastery of color and geometry fascinate. No wonder her intricate sculptural work – so hypnotic and colorful – has caught the attention of critics and collectors alike. You have to see it to believe it.”

Jen Stark’s practice is based on the concepts of replication and infinity, her artwork echoing patterns found in nature. The artist’s optically and formally baffling sculptures, animations, and drawings are inspired by plants, outer space, and the theories of colour, math and science. Her creations incorporate a variety of materials which produce optically hypnotic effects not unlike traditional mandalas and sacred objects. Jen Stark has exhibited her works in various galleries and museums across North America and Europe. Stark lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
Gallery artist Jen Stark recently had a sculpture acquired by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. The new work will be on display as part of an upcoming exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery. The show titled 40 Under 40: Craft Futures opens at the Renwick on July 20th and continues through February 2013, after which it will tour nationally at locations to be announced.
The March 2012 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine features two exhibiting artists at COOPER COLE. Andrew Schoultz is featured on the cover and has a full spread in the issue.
