Jen Raven is currently showing at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, now through March 10.
Visit the Gallery at the LRC or the raven's nest for more information on this exhibit, 'Forward Motion.'
"Jen Raven's work is whimsical with a dark symbolic narrative. The 'whimsy' aspect of Raven's art has much to do with what is socially taught and expected, the things of children's dreams, songs, stories and myths. But the dark symbolic narrative of her art is about facing a reality . . . a reality that the world, and the mind, are much different places from what we are taught . . . filled with contradictions, lies and deceit. Life is not a dream, but a war, and the fight is on!" ~A.S. Ashley
