Dusk / Dawn
Jen Mann is a portrait artist from Canada. Her large-scale paintings are visually stunning and always full of detail and personality. Colour plays an important role in her work with tones like pink or blue washing over faces and bodies. Other times animals connect with her subjects in a more dreamy style. Her recent work shows projected words cast across her subjects, all painted with perfection and resulting in realistic yet contemporary portraiture. These images (Dusk and Dawn) are some of her older work and were the first of her pieces that I came across. I still love them, especially Dawn (pictured second) – I guess I have never been much of a morning person.
