Born in San Francisco, California in 1990, Jennifer Hansen studied at the Academy of Art and received her BFA of Fine Art in 2012. She had shown with the Napa ArtMuseum, 111 Minna Gallery, RAWartists SF&LA, as well as ARTSPACE Warehouse. In 2012 she won the RAWartists, Visual Artist of the year award. She has also been featured on Juxtapoz, and Gallery Nucleus.
At the age of nineteen she came to know Jesus Christ personally through a TV ministry preacher teaching through Matthew 27 on the resurrection of Christ. Hit hard with the gospel truth, Hansen saw herself a sinner in need of the forgiveness and grace of Jesus which brought her to her knees weeping. Constrained by Christ’s love, this is the fire that motivates her in her work to proclaim the good news; Christ died and rose again to save sinners, according to the scriptures.
Isolation, and destruction are reoccurring themes prevalent throughout her dark art to show the effects and consequences of sin. Jennifer battled through depression, anger, and suicidal thoughts. Those experiences are commonly incorporated in her work by a disconnected figure in a void space or landscape. The paintings are done with graphite, charcoal, and many translucent layers of oil. They express human depravity, destructive desire, and suffering, all of which point of the need of the Savior.
