Jenny Brillhart begins her process by organizing objects within found and created spaces, posing subjects that engage from something that might be thought of as nothing. Her technique is a building process of material and repetition, reflecting the geometry of architectural structures and patterns. Playing with physical space, light and shadow, time and materiality, her paintings make us question our perceptions while simultaneously commanding them.
Brillhart was born in 1972 in Keene, New Hampshire. She received a BFA from Smith College in Northampton, MA and went on to study painting and drawing at The Art Students League, NY. In 2003 she graduated from the The New York Academy of Art with an MFA in painting. She has had solo exhibitions at Kuckei + Kuckei Gallery, Berlin, Germany and Emerson Dorsch Gallery, Miami, Florida as well as numerous other solo and group exhibitions. In 2017 she showed at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art in a two person exhibition alongside artist Sara Stites. Brillhart was included in the 2019 deCordova New England Biennial. She lives and works in Blue Hill, Maine.
