Jennifer Trask received a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, MA in 1993 and an MFA from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 1997. Trask’s interests in nature and the organic, grounded in her studies of archeology, anthropology, and biology, have taken her on a journey from creating wearable art to large-scale wall installation. Her signature pieces feature bones, found fragments and antique frames. Most recently her work was exhibited at the Museum of Arts and Design as part of “Flora and Fauna, MAD about Nature” in the fall of 2011. Trask’s work is in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery, the Museum of Arts and Design, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Texas and the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at the State University of New York at New Paltz.
