MOTION ART and MIXED MEDIA
Jennifer is passionate about being a conduit to conversation and interaction within the community. In order to reach a wide audience, she works in a variety of media questioning notions of identity, consumption and private, inner lives.
Today, she's thrilled to dedicate herself to digital art, an art form with less waste and a smaller footprint than traditional mediums. Crypto-art animations are available as NFTs on Open Sea here.
Art to inspire and encourage
Jennifer is an eco-advocate, driven to explore ecological issues, like the impacts of polluted water, and help others navigate paths to a healthier world.
Her ECO-ART animations connect multiple disciplines into original visual and literary art. She invites others to explore a new way of seeing, which is usually in a satirical and slightly subversive light.
Distilling exciting scientific research and serious societal concerns, her motion art videos strike a balance between the difficult truths of our culture and hope for change; it is art meant to inspire and encourage.
Pause, breathe deep and re-center
MOVING MEDITATIONS create calm reflection and help achieve an altered state of consciousness. Loupe, ranked #1 Lifestyle App by Apple TV, has selected several of Jennifer's Moving Meditations, which are now available for streaming on multiple platforms and channels including Pluto TV. Contact Jennifer for info about commercial license options and benefits of motion art.
For sculpture and dioramas, Preston assembles found objects and cast-offs. Her commercial and editorial photos exist in city collections and feature in magazines, websites and non-profit/for-profit company advertising. Preston's personal work appears on television, in galleries and installations.
Jennifer's public art installations run the gamut from photo murals two-stories high on city buildings, to virtual exhibits, to utility box art wraps. She's excited to work in the public realm because she's able to open up a dialogue within the community and invite positive collaboration and participation.
"Chushcoff’s photography is highly atmospheric, edited for misty edges and emotional saturation.”
Rosemary Ponnekanti, The News Tribune
"Her exploration of water in our state is a visual, scientific, and spiritual journey through native ecosystems large and small . . . Chushcoff’s triplicate approach to the subject is intriguing and informational. The macro photography lends an intimate feeling which is supported by the poems, while the scientific facts lend an academic credibility to the project. I enjoy the juxtaposition of research and whimsy present in this project and in its creator."
- Traci Kelly, Tacoma Arts Commissioner
