Jennifer Mullins

Jenny Sidhu Mullins completed a Fulbright Nehru grant in India researching spiritual tourism and traditional Buddhist Thangka painting techniques. She received her BFA in Studio Art from The University of Texas at Austin and later her MFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2009. Mullins lives and works in Washington, D.C, participating at the Arlington Arts Center as a resident artist, and is represented by Hamiltonian Gallery. Her work is internationally exhibited and most recently featured in the American Embassy in Mumbai’s permanent collection as well as being featured in several national publications including the 2009 edition of New American Paintings. Her meticulous, large-scale paintings and interactive sculptures explore notions of commercial mythology and low budget mysticism. Combining aspects of eastern and western culture, Mullins’ work questions cultural stereotypes and national consumption.
