Unfolding The Space Between: Jennifer Printz
Unfolding The Space Between is a meditative Investigation of space and process. In a play between hard-edge painting and drawing and the fluidity of printed fabric, the work questions what forces arrange the sundry of the universe.
Painted lines shimmer as they engulf the viewer in their physical presence as forms and patterns come together and fall apart. Straight, but not perfect, these lines are interrupted by soft skies printed on silks and taffetas. The artist’s hand and the captured sky, two seemingly contrary elements come together in poetic harmony. Created through focused attention and many hours of prolonged touch the artist’s visceral energies infuse the finished work. Each piece then contains within it an intersection of humanity and nature and its own intrinsic history.
Unfolding The Space Between is about the relationship of many unknowable things and a faith in their existence that is strong enough to try to visualize and embody them. It is about working towards understanding in both a tangible physical way and a subtler spiritual one.
Jennifer Printz merges multiple art media to create poetic reflections on the varied systems of our world and the invisible architecture of life. She completed her Masters of Fine Art at The University of Georgia where she also studied in Cortona, Italy.

Her work has been supported by regular residencies in the US, and at international locations, including the St. James Cavalier Centre for Creativity, Valletta, Malta, and La Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, France. She has been awarded grants by the Puffin Foundation, Miami-Dade County Artist Access Grant, and the Marianna Ober Foundation for Spiritual Art.
