Visiting Artist | Jina Valentine | Painting Department
Jina Valentine is an artist, writer, mother and professor based in Durham, NC. Valentine’s work at once invites and defies close reading. Using text as both content and form, she manipulates and obscures the message through cuts, overlays and acidic ink materials that literally devour the paper on which they are printed. She entices viewers to contemplate the intricacies of her lace-like drawings and collages, which seem to promise meaning in the accumulation of visual mark-making and clues, but often leaves them yearning for what they can’t see in the spaces and voids.
