Jennifer Pochinski is an American figurative painter. Her work is characterized by gestural marks and color. Relationships, the male-female power dynamics, and autobiographical elements are key themes in her work.

She was raised in Hawaii and received her BFA from the University of Hawaii in Painting in 1991. Much of her young adulthood was spent traveling and living on the mainland USA and Europe. Since late 2010, she has been living and working in California. She has also exhibited in New York, London Los Angeles, and Seattle. Her work has appeared in the Paris Review and Huffington Post.

"Since moving to California my preoccupation has been with figuration. My ideas are inseparable from the process. I only paint things that are very personal. At least that is where they start; and they go on their own course almost immediately. Painting should always remain a mystery. My gut leads me more than my eye. I consider my studio a space to fail. Going through these motions daily in painting makes me braver in life. My work merely reflects daily attempts at self actualization."

This program will be auto-transcribed.

This program is supported in part by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
