Personal Statement

Personal Statement

Objects fascinate me: their form, function, and the value we place on them. I have a meticulous interest in the mundane, the detritus, and the castaway objects of the world. I collect these objects from periods in my life and turn them into documents of my experiences. In my work, I seek a balance between the accurate depiction of a moment in time and the potential monumental and iconic quality of the ordinary object itself.

My paintings and assemblages are autobiographical in nature. They are totems commemorating a family history of saving, keeping, hoarding, and procrastinating where objects equal memories, everything has value, and nothing should be discarded.

Jennifer Maloney is a native of Brooklyn, N.Y. where she lives and paints. She has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design and New York Institute of Technology.
