Conceptual sculptor Jena Priebe has always been encouraged to be creative. From constant puzzles and anagrams as a child, to the tearing apart and repairing of old cars with her brothers as a teenager, the spark of seeing things just a little bit differently has fueled her artistic endeavors. She inherited her mother’s antique love affair and the coveting of old found objects. This fascination is the fire in her artwork.

She uses a myriad of media. She assembles using mirrors, glass, antiquated found objects, metals, adhesives and the guts of machines. Some things are haggled over, bartered for, unearthed in a forgotten family attic or pulled from the depths of tangled industrial salvage yards. Objects that have been forgotten are given a breath of new life. Her pieces are meant to give the mechanical metaphor of the path we take through the complexities of life. She incorporates kinetic mechanisms and encourages interaction with her pieces. Ultimately she wants to express the magic of those things we often take for granted. To capture the simplicity of wonder and joy we sometimes forget for our everyday surroundings.
