This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Laurence Jenkell depicted Candy under all its forms: paintings and sculptures. This simple object of desire became her subject of preference.

Materials reflect her expressions of fragmentation and include Plexiglas, polyester, aluminum, bronze and marble.  More than a medium, the candy interpreted by Laurence Jenkell become a "language".

Some persons might say that her candy sculpture is a radical gesture stemming from the semantic contents of Pop art and from New Realism, and someone else might speak about an artistic greed that delights our senses and evokes sweetness by glorifying all subjects carried by these candies.

In 2011 Laurence Jenkell as official partner of the G20 in Cannes invented a concept of itinerant or traveling exhibitions of her huge Candies in the colors of Flags.

In 2012, she  had a show of her huge candies’ sculptures with Gabarron Foundation in Valencia (Spain), also at the Fine Arts Museum in Calais.  As part of the show she had some works installed in the city of Calais during the London Olympics and at the same time also in London in the Olympic Village.

She participates in numerous exhibitions and international art fairs (Germany, Belgium, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Spain, France, Hong-Kong, United, Swiss Kingdom, Turkey) and her works are present in private collections worldwide.

Laurence Jenkell's artistic works are both a thought and cultural process: the subject of the Candy allying simplicity and universality, and through candies depicts flags as an interpretation on the question of the identity of a nation. Today through a new technique with transparent, all unique candies hand-painted by the artist, they are a reflect the energy of the color, the fade out of paintings and the magic of transparencies on Plexiglas.
