Jennifer Massaux is a filmmaker and photographer
Upon viewing her work, Jennifer Massaux might seem to some, a comfortable veteran… But once taking into account that she’s only been behind the camera for just under a year and a half, the enormity of her talent quickly becomes apparent. Of course, being an artist, Jennifer sees it all a bit differently, sighting her insane work ethic, tireless perseverance and perhaps most importantly- Her childlike wonder.
Although her layouts and frames often feature the same clean lines and sharp perspective you’d likely find in modern architecture, Jennifer’s work is possessed by the ‘mise en scene’, dreaming up cinematic, starkly contrasted, story worlds and backlit characters rarely glimpsed by the feminine eye. It’s in this nuanced surrealism that we find ourselves being pulled in, inspecting her imaginary set just as she intentioned- Subconsciously.
It’s Jennifer’s insatiable quest for character that has led to several interesting albeit iconic collaborations with the likes of Madonna, and David Blaine, thus allowing her to further explore the boundless potential between these masters of their craft and their like-minded tastes. Jennifer’s last exhibition, entitled “Within” (Showcased in Tribeca) featured a black and white series designated to duality in perceptive existence, centering on a universal ‘self’ living outside the eye of the conscious observer. This same mysterious presence can be detected throughout her work, whether disguised in nior, fine art, or surrealism- It’s the perceptive brush in which she paints. Originally born and raised in Belgium, Jennifer has since found her new home in the United States, splitting her time between New York City and Los Angeles- Both high energy, magical cities, of which inspire her to no end.
