From Cait Munro’s review of Jen Davis’ exhibition “Eleven Years” for artnet News:
“Eleven Years” showcases Jen Davis’s arresting photographs, which have also recently been published in a book under the same name. Davis uses her work to grapple with her own insecurities surrounding body image, as well as the larger issue of societal perceptions of beauty. The self-portraits feature the artist in a variety of situations ranging from the shower to a lover’s embrace to a dining in a restaurant. All of them are tender, human, and extraordinarily well-composed, hinting at an intimate relationship between the artist and the camera.
