Jenna Caspary is a Sydney based artist who graduated from UNSW Art & Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2020.
She has had numerous group exhibitions and was a finalist in the Youth Art Prize at Mosman Art Gallery in 2019, where she won the Summer School Scholarship at The Julian Ashton Art School. She is constantly focused on expanding her skills and has been mentored by Jane Guthleben, Kevin McKay and Wilamina Russo.
Jenna Caspary takes inspiration from the beauty of the natural environment. Her current focus is on capturing a moment in the short lifespan of flowers, making their beauty immortal.
Jenna’s process involves hand choosing flowers at multiple florists, arranging and capturing them in a photograph and then painting the image over several months to capture their softness, stillness and movement.
She paints in a larger-than-life scale in oil on exposed raw Italian linen which elevates the painterly quality of the subject matter and draws attention to the negative spaces.
