Jennifer Tazewell Mawby works across painting and digital media including animation, sound and video. She is interested in the intersection of digital and analog media as a distinctive marker for our times. She critiques the implications of how the digital and virtual realm is changing how we engage, visualize and reconcile our place in the real world (IRL). This manifests in idiosyncratic and often humorous artworks with pictorial worlds and narratives crafted from content gleaned from history and myth, and stolen from data science and social media.
Jennifer holds an honours Masters of Fine Art jointly awarded by OCA and University for the Creative Arts (UCA) in the U.K. She received her BA Classical Studies from the University of British Columbia, completed the Management Skills for Advanced Technology (MSAT) program at Simon Fraser University, and the Fine Art Techniques Certificate at Emily Carr University of Art and Design (in Vancouver). Mawby’s work has been published and shown in Canada, the U.S., and the U.K.
