She has been creating medium-defying sculptures since the 1990’s. Implementing her signature ‘wrapping twist technique’ Jenk is known for her vibrantly colored ‘wrapped’ Candy sculptures. She creates larger than life candy-shaped sculptures in bright colors and varying sizes, completed in materials including bronze, plexiglass, aluminum, marble and authentic Murano glass.
The great freedom and the no less great determination with which Laurence JENK conducts her research, develops her themes and enriches her repertoire of forms, forces admiration and reveals an authentic artist’s temperament. Candy remains the core of her creative identity, but she cleverly explores all its possibilities.
In 2019 Laurence JENK is appointed Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Government. She’s ranked n°430 in the Top 1000 Contemporary artists (2000 - 2020) by auction revenue of the past twenty years, in the exceptional 2020 Artprice report, 20 Years of Contemporary Art Auction History.
