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 within and near her home inform her work. Arnold communicates her observations, with often delicate pieces, 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, beachscapes, and most importantly, the closet. 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.
