Inspired by the immortal phoenix, MOCA's 2019 UNF Artist-in-Residence Jenn Peek utilizes multi-media methods and materials to explore the themes of metamorphosis, construction of identity, and the beauty of transitioning to new stages of life while honoring one's roots.
Jenn Peek is a multidisciplinary artist attending the University of North Florida to complete her Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in sculpture. Her artwork focuses on processes of cast iron and steel fabrication, but she also utilizes elements of fiberglass, foam, fabric and ceramics in her work. Inspired by metamorphosis, rebirth and her nomadic life experiences, Peek creates a sense of movement and tension within stationary compositions meant to illicit a feeling of momentum and change.
