About the Artist
Born in 1972, J.D. Lenzen grew up in and around the Bay Area—the bubble he calls home. He spent his mid-twenties living and working in the redwoods of the San Mateo Mountains, and his late-twenties exploring, playing and stumbling within various underground scenes of San Francisco. His paintings explore the dance between image and identity; questioning popular social archetypes through the use of genderless characters he calls "Moles".
In his own words…
"For as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated by the dialogue of the human condition, the exploration of self and identity in the context of society and the societal roles we embrace. I seek to illustrate, and ultimately process, the multitude of feelings we have about ourselves, others and the homeostatic neuroses that pave our common ground."
