“The Self Practice” is a short documentary, looking at the process behind Jen Mann’s artworks; colorful and vibrant oil paintings which delve into the deep questions of life as she explores the idea of self and identity. Watch Mann’s process, and hear her thoughts, as she prepares for, and completes her series “Q&A”, a solo show at Toronto’s Neubacher Shor Contemporary.
“the artist is always asking for someone to love them…they are saying, look at my work and you will know me, like… the true me.”- Mann

“I am fascinated by the subconscious, the soul, identity, and the way they interact to form meaning and beauty, or nonsense in everything and nothing. I am inspired by existentialism, history, language, and nature.”
