Jennifer Goldfinger

Mixed Media Paintings

Jennifer Goldfinger is a painter and fine artist as well as a children’s book author and illustrator. Her fine art and illustrations often inform and play off of each other. Jennifer works with wax, oil stick and photographs as well as other ingredients to juxtapose present and contemporary worlds with times and forms of the past. By using organic images and figures with contrast scratching, transfers and other building blocks, she encloses or energizes the figures and illustrates narrative elements such as frustration, solitary peace or active play. In the solitary figures Jennifer imagines the inner thoughts of the characters and pulls the story out with playful collage.
