Through painting, video, works on paper, and installations, Jenny Sharaf explores “the mythology of the California girl, the role of the female artist, and the image of the role of the female artist, and the image of the 21st century woman in order to illuminate the evolving generational shifts of feminism and contemporary notions of the gaze”. you can see all of her work at tappan collective, as well as her own website. oh, and she has an excellent instagram photostream and tumblr, as well.
