Jen Hitchings (USA) Residence: September 2014
Jen Hitchings was born in 1988 in New Jersey, USA. She currently works as a gallery manager in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, co-runs a small gallery space in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and maintains a painting practice. Her work is concerned with intimate relationships between people, specifically the youth in cities. She uses photography as source material, thinking about the intention behind taking photographs, and then transforms them into paintings of alternative, psychedelic realities.
