Jennifer Hennessy in her artwork likes to study the essence of things and marvel at the magic of natural phenomena, the greenness of green or the light in the sky. She often looks deeply into something simple and scale it up to magnify it’s beauty or simplicity. She tries to evoke emotions in the viewer. She mainly works with large scale oil on canvas and can also introduce new materials and installations to reinforce a theme. She takes her inspiration from painters such as Liliane Tomasko and Georgia O’Keefe and installation work by Siobhan Hapaska.
Daniela Monza believes the role of an artist is to look for new connections and possibilities and this is the basis of all her creativity. She considers herself mainly a conceptual artist, all starts with an idea, a concept or an emotion she wants to represent; mediums and style are defined and shaped by the concept behind the artwork. Most of her work is project driven, so that every body of work has specific characteristics, different from the others. Materials play special role in defining both the process and the final output through a process of experimentation.

She acknowledges that the material itself conveys a message, both in its formality and its meaning in a society. Her work is mainly abstract, giving the material a stronger voice.
