“To me, jazz represents pure freedom and opportunity, and my artwork is an expression of that freedom” – Marine Penvern
From her earliest days as a scenic painter frequenting NYC jazz clubs to paint the artists to her practice as a prêt-à-porter clothing designer, French-born, Hudson-based artist and fashion designer Marine Penvern has been inspired by jazz. Her solo exhibition Body & Soul features paintings, textiles, and clothing design that seek to convey the soul through the expression of the body with the spirit of jazz improvisation and collaboration.
