This site contains photographs of oil paintings and works on paper by the artist Jen Mazza. What is depicted in these works are everyday objects (flowers, rocks, books, images from books, patterns, wallpaper, and images from books of everyday objects and artworks) as well some figurative works which are close-ups of the body. This subject matter of the work (what is depicted) is not the content of the works, the content instead depends upon the visual-tactile quality of paint as can only be accessed in person and not via the web images (this is the case for sighted and visually impaired alike). Therefore to attempt to translate the content of individual works into words by providing narrated descriptions of what is seen on the screen in each individual work would not improve access to the work. Instead – for both for the visually impaired and the sighted – to get a better sense of the works on this site please read the texts that are available on the website (specifically the artist statements) as this will best clarify how the work functions. This particular page also contains links to other pages with other (non-painted) works in installation, film and book arts. Again do please see the accompanying texts and the general artist statements (linked to in the menu at the top of this page) as this will give the best access to the work.
