At once simple and complex, artist Jen Pack's artistic works may involve frames, but the canvases used are far from typical. In place of the hardier material, she fixes different fabrics to the wooden frames. While some of Jen Pack's artworks are undeniably noticeable in terms of said material, at other times they look like full-fledged paintings.

By paying attention to the color and pattern of each piece of fabric she uses, Jen Pack becomes at once mesmerizing and meditative. As Beautiful Decay notes, "Her interest in abstraction and slightly meditative clustering or patterning of materials give the works a dreamy effortlessness, and they exist as a space for the viewer to step in and lose themselves in the reverie of observation."
