Jennifer Delilah is a painter who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Her early childhood experiences in the wake of the Civil Rights Movement have formed the basis for her subject matter, which challenges ideas of race, class, and gender. Humor is an ever present ingredient in her work, as well as a compassionate view of the foibles of humanity, and its inevitable correction by nature.
Delilah's technique evolved through a process of experimentation and technical study in the mediums of oils, encaustics, and watercolor, as well as photography, sculpture, video, film, and costume and set design. The narrative quality of her paintings derives from this multi discipline practice, and can be read as historical documentation and re-contextualization of events in world history. She attended the Arts Magnet High School in Dallas Texas, with an emphasis on figure drawing and painting, and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the San Francisco Art Institute.
