Wild Beauty by Jen Mann (9 paintings)

These paintings by Jenn Mann are beyond beautiful. I'm especially blown away by the following pieces, where she juxtaposes portraits of beautiful women with magnificent animal wildlife.

“My work comes from my own experience and understanding of society and how I fit into it,” she says. “We forget that we are animals, we expect ourselves to not act like one or behave as one. As though we should fit into perfect molds and live up to unrealistic expectations. The series is called ‘Fera' which is the Latin origin of the word feral. It's a personal escape for me. I think artists are certainly people who feel the pressures to fit into society. But we just want to be wild.”

Mann was born in 1987 in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, and studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) in Toronto, receiving her BFA in Printmaking in 2009. She currently lives and works from home in Mississauga.
