List of products by Artist Laurence JENK
Laurence JENK is born on December 31, 1965. She lives and works in Vallauris in the Alpes-Maritimes, France. Well known as Laurence Jenkell, in 2020, the artist decides to change her signature for a shorter and a modern name: JENK. What for? Develop its identity first, for better protect her new artworks.
She has been creating medium-defying sculptures since the 1990’s. Implementing her signature ‘wrapping twist technique’ Jenk is known for her vibrantly colored ‘wrapped’ Candy sculptures. She creates larger than life candyshaped sculptures in bright colors and varying sizes, completed in materials including bronze, plexiglass, aluminum, marble and authentic Murano glass. Candy remains the core of her creative identity, but she cleverly explores all its possibilities. In only a decade her Candies and their more or less direct versions, the iconic ‘Wrappings’, ADN’s, Robots, Butterflies, have had an international success. Though the candy remains her favourite subject, her latest wrappings twists creations reflect on impending environmental issues like the exhaustion of the coffee growing lands, the proliferation of non-biodegradable disposable products and the poaching of endangered animals. JENK‘s artworks are present in more than 25 countries. She’s represented by numerous galleries and is part of important private, public and institutional collections.
