Jennyfer Stratman

Transforming my experience and interpretation of the world into the visual language of sculpture is what inspires me to create. I aim to construct artwork rich with emotion, content and form.

Standing Between Desert And Stars

“Standing Between Desert And Stars” takes us on an imaginary journey of discovery through Arizona’s unique landscape.

From a distance, the biomorphic shapes suggest the mountain ranges surrounding the Valley of the Sun. Up close, the multicolored layers reveal glimpses of our arid flora and iconic fauna. Coyotes, road runners and lizards are some of the desert dwellers cohabitating with saguaro, ocotillo and prickly pear cactus. At night, we can gaze at the sparkling distant stars and the silhouette of the mountain peaks.

Contemplating our place in this desert landscape helps us appreciate an interconnection with the natural world and beyond.

This piece was commissioned by Valley Metro and is located at 675 E. Washington St, Phoenix, Arizona.

Interlocking Horizons

“Interlocking Horizons” depicts vine-like steel rods growing up from two richly patinated bases. Atop the vines grow bronze figures, suggesting foliage. The different lengths of the vines can be interpreted as each individual’s stages of growth on their own “horizons”.  The undulation of the figures can also be viewed as the contour of distant landscapes.

The intersecting “landscapes” suggest a pairing of two worlds. This idea stems from my migration to Australia from the US and sharing my time between both countries.

This piece is located on the campus of Western New Mexico University, Silver City, New Mexico.

Segmented Landscape
"Segmented Landscape" draws on ideas of landscape, architecture and human connection. The profile of the segments suggests an undulating mountain-scape whilst the geometry references the architecture of a cityscape. The individual figures represent our inherent interconnection with the land and with each other. This piece is located at the Lakeside Packenham development near Melbourne, Australia.
