Tena koutou Addictees! 

We have a new artist and an invitation to a virtual exhibition.

It is with great pleasure that we introduce Addicted’s newest family member, Jennifer Chalklen. The Singapore-based, New Zealand born Jennifer is a contemporary realist artist who is mostly self-taught. Her works are a journey into whimsy, delicate and beautiful, reflective and poignant.

Jennifer developed a strong interest in realistic portraiture during her five years of living in Jakarta, Indonesia. Despite the chaos and abject poverty, Jennifer observed a quiet pulse of connectedness through acts of kindness, cultural nuances and the Islamic religious practices, which acted as an antidote to the disorder of the city, and an identity of togetherness within diversity. Her works display symbolism and imagery which act as a conjoint to invisible concepts that contain reflections of beauty, and act as visual explanations that are relatable across communication barriers.

For our inaugral virtual exhibition, Jennifer has kindly offered to be the guinea pig. Geography or having nothing to wear is not an issue for our internationally located / wardrobe challenged Addictees.

Jennifer’s exhibition “Invisible Spaces” kicks off today. Crack open your box of vino, get yourself some cheese and crackers, click Invisible Spaces and enjoy the virtual exhibition experience.
Jennifer's works can be viewed in Singapore by appointment.

Warm up your mouse clicking finger and pop into the exhibition now.

Artist ( Description ): 

Jennifer Chalklen is a mostly self-taught contemporary artist from New Zealand and is currently based in Singapore with her family.

Jennifer’s practice is a gentle contemplation in a visual form, which results in a series of sublime works which are strongly representational in form, but somehow otherworldly in design. Symbolism is evident in her works, representing strength and unity. "When we reach to god in its most simplest form, or to nature, or a paintbrush, we are reaching to parts within ourselves that enable us to connect softly to our surroundings and bring comfort to each other with a greater level of empathy and understanding.”

Her work displays symbolism and imagery which act as a conjoint to invisible concepts that contain reflections of beauty, and act as visual explanations that are relatable across communication barriers.

“I observe the intricacies of the female experience and femininity, the connections between people, our subconscious, and articulating a visual response to the life force that binds us together, and our connection to the outside world. Light as a force is beautiful and delicate, soft, and strong. I attempt to capture in my work the constant, unwavering variable in my existence. This is the place where I paint from, in this life which feels like perpetual transit, it has become a place to rest, a home.” – Jennifer Chalklen
