Jennifer OMeara has been creating a body of work since 1991 that includes large-scale photographic c-prints, archival pigment prints, and casein/encaustic paintings depicting scenes of rural America. The artist exhibited her monumental barns in four out of the five years at Artprize - 2011 at the Grand Rapids Art Museum - and the works sold to collectors each year. Jennifer's work has also been exhibited at galleries across the United States. For over two decades she has traveled the back roads of the U.S. for inspiration, where she finds the barns that most often become her subjects. Her studio was the third of its kind in 1990 (After Graham Nash and Harvest Productions) to explore digital printmaking techniques for large-scale photography. Barns are a recurring theme in my work. I see barns first for their color and form, second for their iconic representation. In fact, their iconic stature both informs and is informed by my treatment of them. Jennifer Omeara
