Since 2012, Jenna Johnson has used acrylic paint and added objects to envelop her viewers into her over-sized paintings. She currently finds comfort in working large-scale, but also focuses on applying precise textures encouraging the viewers to approach the art from all angles. Believing vitality lies within strangers learning from one another, Jenna’s focus on making artwork that brings differing generations and cultures together to encourage that conversation.
The first five years of her career consisted mainly of commissioned work. Since 2016 she has begun focusing her efforts on creating more personal work to portray life as a “twenty-five year old, female artist living in Omaha, Nebraska”; Propelling through the stereotypes that come with the territory.
Her work can currently be viewed at the Hot Shops Art Center in downtown Omaha, as well as varying business in the surrounding area.
