Born in 1970 in Raleigh, North Carolina, Jen Ray currently divides her time between Berlin, Germany and New York City. She produces large-format drawings and concurrent performances that transport their viewers into a surreal universe where Amazonian women rule, militants move across dystopian landscapes, and magic spaces are occupied by rebels and provocateurs. The mystical realism of her images is reminiscent of the worlds created by Alejandro Jodorowsky or Moebius and those featured in traditional Japanese prints and Manga culture. Her art has been shown in museums and galleries in cities including New York, Berlin, and Paris. She is currently represented by Wentrup Gallery, Berlin, Germany.
Ray is includedin a new drawing anthology titled Vitamin D2, New Perspoectives in Drawing published by Phaidon. Go to:
