JEN WINK HAYS

 

JEN WINK HAYS IS ORIGINALLY FROM MAINE, SHE NOW WORKS AND LIVES IN PHILADELPHIA WITH HER CHILDREN AND HUSBAND, ARTIST TYLER HAYS.

WHILE WORKING, SHE CLOSES IN ON DETAILED UNDER-PAINTINGS WITH LUSH FIELDS OF OPAQUE OIL PAINT. WORKING IN THESE DISTINCT, INCOMPLETE LAYERS ALLOWS HER TO EXPLORE THE IDEA OF CONCEALING AND REVEALING, A PROCESS WHICH SHE HAS DESCRIBED SIMILAR TO THAT OF AN ARCHAEOLOGIST, “TOILING AWAY TO REVEAL HIDDEN, LONG FORGOTTEN INFORMATION.”
