Jen Stark | Neon Vortex, 2016 | 150 Limited edition prints | 24” x 30”
Titled “Neon Vortex,” Stark’s new work is a hand-pulled, seven color, UV-treated fluorescent screen print on 290 gsm 100% rag paper measuring 24 x 30 inches. Production is limited to an edition of only 150 prints and 10 artist proofs. The print is currently available for purchase.
Stark’s “Neon Vortex” is the fourth installment of the Center’s Knight Masterworks Print Collection which also includes Kenny Scharf’s “Miamor,” Hernan Bas’s “Downhill at Dusk” and the collection’s inaugural work “Red Poppies” by leading American contemporary artist Donald Sultan.
In addition to the print, Stark created a site-specific installation located on the second tier of the Arsht Center’s Ziff Ballet Opera House Lobby that has become a “selfie” spot for guests at the Center. The installation features imaginative fluorescence reflective of Stark’s signature style.
Stark has exhibited globally with major shows in NYC, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Thailand and Canada. Her work is included in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the West Collection, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale and MOCA Miami among others.
Jen Stark was born in Miami and received her BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2005, majoring in fibers with a minor in animation. Her artwork mimics intricate patterns and colors found in nature while exploring ideas of replication and infinity.
Proceeds from the sale of the prints will benefit the Center’s ongoing visual arts program. Those interested in purchasing “Neon Vortex, or other any piece of the collection may contact Aric Kurzman firstname.lastname@example.org or at 305.987.5249.
