Jen Boisvert is a native North Shore Ipswich area Artist who explores visual interpretations and merges relationships between humans and nature. Her sculpture creates a visual dialogue for the viewer to develop their intuitive conclusions. The dialogue between artwork and viewer becomes an intimate catalyst to finding immediate connections with the earth and ourselves through various sculptural works. She uses shapes found in nature and corresponds them with internal and external human anatomical shapes.
The process in the content of the artwork creates a language of the human form collaborating with the natural environment on earth. The undercurrent and thread in the art connects a river of consciousness of humans viscerally tied with the earth.
