Tess Jenkins (b. 1986 Albany, NY) uses painting as a tool of investigation to better understand our infinitely complicated, multi-layered body systems, how we relate to them, and how they affect our senses of self. She received a Fine Arts Diploma from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and is a 2023 participant in NYC Crit Club’s year-long intensive mentorship The Canopy Program. Recent group exhibitions include The Pit (Palm Springs, CA), Unpaved Gallery (Yucca Valley, CA) and Compound YV (Yucca Valley, CA). She currently lives and works in Flamingo Heights, CA, in the Mojave Desert.
