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.”
