Jennyfer Stratman's artistic journey, born amidst the sun-soaked landscapes of Phoenix, Arizona, has evolved into a profound exploration of form and substance, transcending the earthly confines of clay to embrace the resolute embrace of bronze, steel, and mixed media. Commencing her odyssey into the realm of visual arts and art education at Arizona State University in 1992, she first embraced the tactile allure of ceramics, only to traverse the vast expanse of creative horizons within the university foundry.
At the heart of Stratman's artistic lexicon lies a metaphorical interplay between nature's tableau and its myriad interpretations. The human figure, a recurring motif, transcends mere representation to embody the essence of corporeal existence. Within this thematic framework, trees and branches assume a figurative mantle, serving as conduits linking the natural world to our physical presence. The artist, with a visionary gaze, navigates the internal landscapes of body and mind, contemplating the profound interplay between our origins and the shaping of identity. With 33 solo exhibitions and over 100 group exhibitions on her illustrious resume, Stratman's artistic resonance reverberates nationally and internationally.
