From Pauline Marceillac’s article in Causette (translated from the French):
This is the time it took for Jen Davis to tame her image in her mind, and in the eye of the beholder—nearly eleven years. Through a series of photographs, exhibited at the New York gallery ClampArt, the American artist sets the scene by giving the viewer a window into private situations. No matter what discomfort she felt for her “overweight” body, alone or with different male partners, it is sublimated thanks to light and color that evokes the paintings of Vermeer. Regardless of cliches, she built around herself a world of beauty that allows her to reconcile with her own flesh.
