Jennifer Parham Gilomen

Jennifer Parham Gilomen uses domestic interior spaces, objects, patterns, silhouettes, and materials to explore questions related to self-identity. Memory objects is the artist’s ongoing investigation into how objects define who and what we think we are. While in residence, Gilomen will work with a small group on the concept of “memory objects” and identify symbols representing a personal memory. She will then guide the participants in designing and silk-screening silhouettes onto fabric from which the artist will create a series of simple dresses that will be displayed in her studio. Raised in Kingsport, TN, Gilomen received her MAT in Art Education and MFA from Winthrop University and studied at Penland School of Crafts. A former resident artist at McColl Center for Art + Innovation in 2005, Gilomen credits her residency with an important shift in her work – from creating works for herself to creating works that inspire self-revelations through interactive communication with others.
