Trained in photography, Jennifer Zwick works in a variety of media, including large-scale installations, wearable sculptures, painting, interactive video installation, printmaking, and photographic processes. She is particularly interested in optics, symmetry, and humor. A 2018 Artist Trust Arts Innovator Award Finalist, her artwork is included in Seattle’s King County Permanent Arts Collection, the Microsoft Art Collection, was featured three times on the cover of The Stranger, and she has received numerous grants and awards, including two 4Culture Arts Special Projects Grants, two Artist Trust GAP Grants (including the Jini Dellaccio GAP Grant), a CityArts Projects Grant, and an Artist Trust Fellowship.
She is a sculptural photographer, building things which are meant to be seen only from the specific vantage point of the camera, using one-point-perspective, in-camera techniques, site-specific construction, and sculptural installation, presenting nonlinear narratives depicting the fraction of a second where something fundamentally concrete is shifted just enough to turn an ordinary moment into something gently surreal.
