The Story Line
Jenie Gao will develop a suite of prints and artist books that tell stories of people who dare to make things.
My work centers on stories of objects and symbols that people assign meaning to, as anchor points in our identities as we continue to change and grow. I am fascinated with the history of why we make things. With modern business, it’s easy to forget that the things we manufacture have their roots in an art form.
So my next body of work will be a suite of prints and artist books that tell the story of people who dare to make things, who add beauty to a world that will always be bigger than any of us can observe, experience, or understand. This is the project I am embarking on, and it only makes sense that the suite should tell the stories across many places as it grows.
