Jenn Dierdorf
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick



ARTIST STATEMENT: My studio practice lies at the intersection of feminism, history and personal narrative. I use the artistic and cultural trope of the flower still-life as both an exploration of painting and a symbolic gesture on gender and identity. My renditions of flowers are simultaneously elevated and complicated by scale, materials and abstraction. I incorporate a variety of pattern, mark-making, cartoon line and decoration in order to both stray from, and reinforce conventional ideas of this artistic trope. Historically flower painting has been a pastime relegated to women and seen as a devalued art form. When I paint flowers, they are neither “from life” nor idealized symbols of femininity. They reflect the chaos and temporal nature of life and poke holes in the dichotomy of masculine/feminine. I work in a range of scale, with a particular interest in larger-than-life works that present the “still-life” as a confrontational image. I use acrylic and ink, and often incorporate collage and mixed materials, on paper, canvas or wood panels.
