Drawing from historical, symbolic, religious and mythological imagery, Jenny Chernansky traces anew an ontology of female representation and inequality, by translating contemporary feminist ideas into installations where new media is often paired with paintings made using traditional techniques. Using mixed media, painting, and photography, the inner landscape of our minds is explored weaving a labyrinth of dream-like images. Concepts of the shadow self, feminine archetypes, and cross-cultural symbolism are often present. Jenny has shown her work internationally, has attended the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts, received her BA from Columbia College Chicago and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
