Conceptual artist Jennifer Elster recently debuted â€œTHE RETROSPECTIVE OF AN EXTROVERTED RECLUSE Part Oneâ€ â€“ the first time the artist has presented her work to the public. Culled from a large body of work amassed over Elsterâ€™s underground career, the show is the first of a multi-part retrospective the artist is in the process of revealing.
"MYSTERIES ABOUND IN THE WORK OF JENNIFER ELSTER"
Alina Cohen, The Observer
Previously working out of the public eye, Elster has spent years of deep excavation into the recesses of her mind and the minds of her subjects, analyzing the depths of human nature. Using words, paper, canvases, photographs, audio, video and performance art, Elster obsessively explores ways to deal with the severity of reality. With an unabashed look, the work delves rawly into such themes as life, love, loss and gender, race, and terrorism. The work serves as an effort to open a real discourse about our current times.
