Born in Louisiana in 1977, Jennifer Arnold was raised in northwest Florida on the Gulf Coast. Currently, she resides and works in Corpus Christi, TX on Padre Island. She settled there after receiving her MFA from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.
Objects, architecture, and nature near her home inform her work and force her to explore such subjects intimately. Arnold explores this struggle in her spaces and integrates her thoughts into photography, collage, sculpture, and most importantly the Canvas Peels.
The Canvas Peels are her most unique works. The process began, as most do, as an accident. Fortunately, through tireless experimenting, she was able to reproduce it and control it. The show, A Layered Space, was her MFA Thesis Exhibition in which she revealed the works. Currently, she is expanding on that work with images from her new space including the swimming pool, skyscapes, and beachscapes. The process is still secret.
Arnold serves as Co-Chair for the Board of Directors, and Chair of the Exhibitions Committee for K Space Contemporary; a 501(c)3 non-profit contemporary art space in downtown Corpus Christi. She is also a rotating adjunct professor (Photography and Art & Society), as well as the academic advisor for the arts for TAMUCC.
