JEN BROWN | PAINTINGS | BFA Senior Thesis: Desolation Row

My senior thesis at MICA (May 2009) incorporated folk and fairy tales twisted into stories that I had happily confused throughout my life. I love to re-contextualize stories and characters. Narrative and myths (stories) are very powerful. There are stories we are told as children which resonate for us throughout our lives. They affect us culturally as well as personally; as much as can be traced to the over beautification and simplification of Disney movies, a deeper history of folk-tale driven hopes and dreams pervades every culture known to man.
