New York-based, multidisciplinary artist Jen Ray presents performances and paintings that examine power, history, and self-determination. Drawing inspiration and symbolism from a wide range of references, she creates multi-media artworks that challenge perceptions about cultural identity. Jen Ray has presented multiple live performances in New York City including: 'American Woman' featuring New York City afro-punk musician Honeychild Coleman, 'Looks That Kill' a live dance performance in Chelsea, and "Diamond and a Pearl", a collaboration with dancer Sindy Butz, about artistic transformation in New York City.
