ART AT BAY Presents: Jenny Sharaf

W7939W7928

I want my work to be academic and fun. I’m a people-pleaser and I think that my art operates the same way. I like things that are pretty, but a bit naughty. I like art with substance, that could also be admired with just a look.

San Fransisco,California- Jenny Sharaf’s versatility and pristine execution is hard to dismiss. While she seems to be interested in a progressive outlook (one that might be just appreciated by some people), she also appeals to a kind of ‘universal’ beauty, which appeals to all. Her colorful compositions reference an old school vibe, perhaps late 50’s,  early 60’s abstraction, yet also alludes to a sophisticated Microsoft Paint, glitch art aesthetic.

Although painting seems to be her main go-to medium, the artist does works within a multidisciplinary practice that includes painting, collage, and video.  In her more technological driven works, Sharaf’s femininity shines through her choices; in many occasions she uses images of past female sex symbols to create flashy and hypnotic compositions that allude to her paintings’ aesthetic in an interesting way.
