Artist’s Statement & Bio:

Through mixed media work, I examine the archive that we create when posting on social media. Using text from my personal social media posts, I create a comparison of thoughts that someone might think in person versus what they would post online. This collection of text pieces on cellophane touches on widespread yet unmentioned issues such as the romanticization of mental illness online, beauty standards for women and how that impacts judgements, and disparities between one’s identity in person and the identities we create online.

Jenna Wyatt is a Canadian interdisciplinary artist whose work is questioning the romanticization of mental health issues, set beauty standard for women online as well as identity in real life versus identities we create online. She is currently attending the Alberta College of Art + Design, majoring in Drawing.
