Jennifer B. Thoreson


Long before capturing a photograph, Jennifer B. Thoreson enters a process that includes the manufacture of abstract objects, the organization of architectural spaces and the assembly of furniture and models to create deeply personal and attractive pieces.

She lives and works in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and plays various roles, including photographer, teacher, lecturer and mother. Her work has been shown in collections both nationally and internationally.

The elements she shows in her images, which she carefully selects, creates and rehabilitates, play as important a role in her art as the finished photographs. Thoreson explains: “When I discover a mundane or unwanted object, I bring it to my space, I wash it, I repair it, I give it a careful purpose, I sun it in light and I photograph it, I feel as if I was born again. It’s re-proposed. “

In a similar way, through her art, she invites the viewer to a process of self-renewal while exploring the complexities of human relationships and the ways in which the breakdown can give way to redemption and healing.
