Formerly an abstract painter, Jeanne Wilkinson now works digitally using numerous apps and programs for her digital collages and animated installations. One of her series involves the "Painted People," former Barbies, Kens, GI Joes, etc., transformed in her Brooklyn studio to become a clan of wanderers of the earth and beyond. She photographs the People, and via the magic of the computer, sends them on fantastical journeys with their companion animals. Her work has been shown in New York City and internationally, and is in many collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Her work has also been featured in numerous magazines and publications online. Her videos have been shown at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) and at the Greenpoint and NYC Indie Film Festivals, and a video installation was featured in a play at the 13th Street Repertory Theater in Manhattan. She currently shares her time between Madison, WI, and Brooklyn, NY.
