If I ever succeed in opening up a wormhole to another dimension (not something that exercises a lot of my time but a constant background interest) then I fully expect said portal to look like one of Jen Stark’s artworks. The Miami-born master of colour and form embraces complexity but in a fully inclusive way, creating pieces that are both immediately satisfying and infinitely intriguing. Her latest show in LA was called To The Power Of referencing both mathematical formulae and, more obliquely, religious incantation and the work on show proved that Jen’s never been more confident exploring her preoccupations. The eye-catching colours are just the start – prepare to be sucked in as far as your imagination will let you go.
