Jenna Pallio, born in New York, has lived and worked in Milan for 14 years. She graduated from New York University where she also obtained a Masters in Studio Art, deepening her knowledge between New York and Venice.
Her work explores the esoteric nature of our memory through content and processes, removing the layers on the surface as we dig into our experiences and emotions to discover what is underneath. Paintings and drawings are created through a removal technique. An area is covered with a certain material and the image is created by erasing it from the surface. In this way, one moves backwards to capture a concrete and familiar moment of the past. The process reflects the functioning of memory in our lives. While some memories disintegrate, they are moments that remain.
