Jeremiah Jenkins

Jeremiah Jenkins was born in Tennessee and now lives and works in the San Francisco Bay area.

“I have a love for and fascination with objects. My work relies on the object. To me an object is anything isolated in meaning. The way I combine objects is meant to release the object from its isolation and propel it towards a target, creating a discussion in between. In asking why a combination was made or action taken, the viewer unfolds the meaning in their mind. My objects are a catalyst for discovering the way the world is and it turns out, the world is a pretty funny place.”
