Jennifer Bartlett

Jennifer Bartlett’s Biography

Jennifer Bartlett is a contemporary American artist whose paintings, drawings, and prints combine abstraction and representation. Bartlett’s subject matter is often mundane—a white chair, trees, a hallway—yet structured and formally analyzed in such a way as to give it a sense of profound meaning. She explores various methodologies to question the artistic form, asking, for example, what happens when a painting has no edges? Her innovative techniques and conceptual projects are partly born from her early experience working with an eclectic mix of teachers that included Alex Katz and Al Held, as well as being influenced by peers such as Brice Marden and Richard Serra. Born on March 14, 1941 in Long Beach, CA, she studied at Mills College in Oakland where she became friends with the noted abstract painter Elizabeth Murray, and went on to receive her MFA from the Yale School of Art. Bartlett’s works are found in many institutional collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. She lives and works in New York, NY. ”
