Jen Kershaw

Jennifer Kershaw is a representational painter from Canada. She works in oils, building the image up with glazes of color, in the tradition of Dutch still life and Canadian painter, Mary Pratt. She has always been inspired by the transformative power of light; how it can lift up the everyday into something jewel-like and extraordinary, while its transience inspires her to never take things for granted; to enjoy, savor, and celebrate what we have while it lasts, because as a wise Beatle once said, “tomorrow never knows”. Her most recent body of work is an exploration of sense memory – certain smells, flavors, songs, and physical items that remind her of people, places, or times long past. In painting the personal, she hopes to touch upon the universal.
