Jen Mann is a Canadian artist living just outside of Toronto. She attended OCAD U from 2005-2009, receiving her BFA in printmaking. Since then she has focused on painting and developed a large body of work, which explores the subconscious, and focuses on ideas of freedom, perceived beauty, identity and home. Jen loves to garden, cook and watch movies in her free time.
About Fera Series
In her first series of oil paintings, Jen has addressed our relationship to animals, and our wilder instinctive side. Using the term “Fera”, which is the Latin origin of the word “Feral” to title the series, Mann sets the tone for the collection. Juxtaposing wild animals with women, Jen is commenting on the passionate, raw and wild nature of humans. By blending the women together with the animal until one is no longer separate from the other, Mann creates a dreamlike image where one’s inner animal spirit or totem can escape from the human form, and exist freely on the canvas.
