 Jenna Wright’s work starts with the “home” and the dense suburban environment of her native New Jersey. The Northeast’s landscape has been altered and sculpted by residential living and greatly differs from the relative openness of the American West. Texas provided the contrast to assess her suburban surroundings in a broader way. The molding of an individual, the formation (interior/exterior) of a home, and the shaping of a landscape all have common ideals in our society, to which she is drawn.  Wright explores how conventional social pressures impact our understanding of home and domestic comforts.

Founded in 1970, the GFAA has grown to more than 80 members, many of whom regularly exhibit their work, actively teach, or contribute to Montgomery County arts events.

This series of paintings examines the circle as both focal point and moving vehicle. The paintings are often arranged in "sets". As a lens or porthole, each painting offers entry into the space beneath its solitary surface. Once assembled into a larger constellation of elements, the form acts as a conduit passing its force through its outermost points of contact. In this way it becomes a wheel rolling against a neighboring wheel. [less-]

 Jenna Wright’s work starts with the “home” and the dense suburban environment of her native New Jersey. The Northeast’s landscape has been altered and sculpted by residential living and greatly differs from the relative openness of the American West. Texas provided the contrast to assess her suburban surroundings in a broader way. The molding of an individual, the formation (interior/exterior) of a home, and the shaping of a landscape all have common ideals in our society, to which she is drawn.  Wright explores how conventional social pressures impact our understanding of home and domestic comforts.
