Jennifer Sanchez - Featured Artist for Wheatpaste Art Collective

Vivid Geometrics + Vibrant Colors

Featured Art by Jennifer Sanchez

Jennifer Sanchez is a New York-based artist whose work incorporates vivid geometrics and vibrant colors. Jennifer’s paintings are enthusiastic works in progress whose layering and intense experimental techniques ultimately result in minimal and uncluttered pieces. The revelation of the process in the work itself is what distinguishes her art, making her paintings instantly recognizable

Wheatpaste Art Collective: What got you into trouble as a kid?
Jennifer Sanchez: I was a pretty good kid. I don't remember getting into trouble much. I would sneak into the pot and eat the potatoes in my mom's beef stew.

WP: What’s on your iPod right now?
JS: Hah, I don't have an ipod! I primarily listen to music via Pandora or Spotify. Anita O'Day & Blossom Dearie are a constant. I made a playlist on Spotify called "WhineyRock" that includes tragic gems by the My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, Ladytron & LCD Soundsystem. I can't listen to "How Soon is Now" without laughing. It's hilarious how dreadful & miserable it all is.

WP: Describe yourself in 5 words.
JS: The lady with big sunglasses.

WP: The world is ending tomorrow- how do you spend your last day?
JS: Hopefully, Il Cantinori is open. Why not? What am I saving my money for? If they're not open, then Luke's Lobster. And I'm getting 2 lobster rolls.

WP: What’s your favorite thing about where you live?
JS: The amount and variety of everything.

WP: Who, would you say, is/are the biggest influences of your work?
JS: It changes. Right now it's weavers from various traditions that create beautiful geometric patterns. Jennie Slick is a contemporary weaver in Arizona. The precision of the weaving and the rigorous geometric patterns are stunning. And saddle blankets by Southwest weavers are beautiful in their simplicity of patterns and materials.

WP: What are some of your favorite materials to work with?
JS: Tape is my new best friend. I've always associated using tape with anal retentive work. But for me it makes things very easy & quick. I'm not interested in perfection, but in an impression. So I like it when I haven't pressed the tape down firmly enough and paint bleeds. Those bleeds can create an unexpected new vibration or texture to the painting.

WP: What piece of art do you own that you cherish the most?
JS: I have a Kate Bingaman Burt drawing she made during her show at Jen Bekman Gallery of my Target receipt, plus a pencil that says "Obsessive Consumption".  And I have a Don Hamerman print from his "Baseball" series.
