George Jenne makes multi-media work to affirm his belief in the pleasure of repulsion. He uses video, sculpture and drawing to establish points where polar opposites converge. He pairs that which is sick and deranged with humor, joy and beauty as an allusion to our need to leaven our faults and self-loathing with compassion.
Jenne has exhibited at numerous venues including Exit Art, PS 122, The Center on Contemporary Art, Jack the Pelican Presents, and Frosch & Portmann. His work has been reviewed in The New Yorker, Art in America, Time Out New York and the Washington Post. He is a former faculty member of the Rhode Island School of Design and is currently a teaching fellow at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
