Jena Thomas

Jena Thomas (b. 1987, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida) is a Miami based painter. Her fictional landscapes explore the ways in which mankind alters the natural world. Displaced human debris and manmade constructs such as pools, patios, and golf courses are featured prominently in her work and serve as visceral boundary lines between the fabricated and the organic. Rich color and surface texture attribute to her creation of a luscious otherworld. Thomas has exhibited extensively in Florida and New England, with recent exhibitions at the Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery, Boca Raton Museum of Art, and Art Palm Beach.
