Coming Soon: Jenn Shifflet

Over the past twenty years, Shifflet has pursued a fascination with fluid and liminal states that is consistent with her Buddhist-influenced understanding of the world as at once unified and endlessly shifting.
Shifflet first became interested in glass for its capacity to allow a direct play with light. She continues to experiment with the material, occasionally tinting it with paint. The resultant panels allude to landscape—ambiguous and internal spaces rather than specific external locations—and sometimes to architectural space. At once delicate and strong, they embody the essential duality of nature. Shifflet is also interested in optical phenomena such as the halation effect (how a color is perceived in relation to those surrounding it), using them to conjure oneiric atmospheres.
