ELLEN JANTZEN
Transcending Reality (Front Room)

back to current exhibition

In the Front Room, the gallery presents an exhibition by Ellen Jantzen titled Transcending Reality. Just as Daniel Raedeke blurs the definition of painting, Ellen Jantzen blurs the definition of photography. Her work explores the states of reality: how it is experienced and revealed. To depict something so abstract is, unsurprisingly, no easy task. Jantzen's photographic series relies on the trust people place in the medium. She digitally reconstructs her photographs, pushing them to more ambiguous forms, allowing viewers space to project their own imaginings and meanings to them. In doing so, she is able to make visual that which has no visual component. She takes viewers beyond the surface of an image, where something deeper and unexpected is revealed.

Jantzen currently lives between Los Angeles and St. Louis. She received an advanced degree in Fashion Design in 1992 from the Fashion Institute of Design, Los Angeles. Jantzen has been included in solo and group exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe. Her work has earned her several prestigious awards including a First Prize at PX3 (Prix de la Photographie, Paris-2013).
