Mind’s Eye Studio & Gallery showcases the work of San Francisco Bay Area Artist Jen Silver. Since 1995 her works have exhibited and sold through websites, art shows and galleries based in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Montreal, San Francisco and Pune, India. In 2012, her work will be part of a tour across Europe.
Jen’s work has been positively received by gallery owners, art critics and collectors and the general public. She has participated in exhibits featured in Time and The Huffington Post and on CNN, ABC and The Jimmy Kimmel Show. She has been included in educational curriculum at high school and college levels.
The work explores many social, emotional and political subjects, but the common theme is exploring the mind’s eye, or the use of language to conjure fully constructed works of art from memories, desires, feelings, or internal images. Through deceptively simple and powerfully suggestive text messages, she stimulates vivid inner images, smells, emotions and sounds unique to each individual. In various works, she explores the effect of color and font in psycho-suggestion, pokes fun at media messages, examines differing learning styles, analyzes archetypal images, and questions stereotypes all while taking the viewer for a trip down memory lane. Jen says, “I hope that viewers give themselves permission to go wherever their minds take them.”
