Jenny Feinberg lives in a world splashed shamelessly with neons and metallics and bursts of expression. After spending two years organizing gatherings for creative souls in the Bay, she realized many human experiences couldn't be described adequately with words. To this end, her painting practice represents her reconciliation of darkness and light as she navigates a world that can sometimes feel a bit too stimulating. She thinks of her art as a "sacred unraveling," knowing that the act of creation itself is unpredictable. To engage fully in this internal tug-of-war, she abstracts the dichotomies elicited from pride and pain, joy and struggle. Her intention is to invite the viewer into her journey on the canvas, giving you full permission to reflect a narrative that feels most aligned with your own experience.
Jenny Feinberg is a writer, speaker, and community organizer. A long-time Bay Area dweller and early member of Spark Arts' extended "family", she is currently living in Los Angeles, where she paints and manages a community space on Venice Beach. Her book, The White Rectangle, traces the path every aspiring creative must consider in learning how to navigate a blank canvas over and over again. Before engaging in the arts, Jenny spent 10 years working in public service, training and identifying women in the Bay Area to run for local office. She is a seasoned campaign strategist and lifelong feminist.
