artist statement

Foremost I believe that art should make you feel something, it should touch you, make you think, laugh, cry. I love to tell stories and I'm interested in creating surreal visual fables or freshly minted fairy tales for adults. My work transforms grit into something that hints positive, but the viewer just does not know and is in between safe harbors, hoping for the best.  “The Conqueror Pig” is an allegory that represents the internal struggle between good and evil. It is up to the viewer to decide if he is helping or hurting the creatures he has found deep in his basement.


artist bio

 Born in Queens, New York, Jada Fabrizio is an American Photographer who lives and works in Hudson County, New Jersey. She studied creative writing at SUNY New Paltz and photography at the School of Visual Arts And ICP (International Center of Photography) in New York City.


Jada emphasizes the importance of capturing emotional experiences. "By not telling a complete story" she says, "It allows others to "feel" the photograph in their own way." She goes on to say, "I want the spectator to look at my photographs and experience their own reality through them."

art scene today Q & A

Q: Where do you see yourself in the art scene today?
A: Sometimes I feel like a terminal "Emerging Artist" I would really like to emerge already! However, I do like to evolve and stretch myself and so every time I start a new project I am a new artist. The one constant in my work is the narrative aspect. I am a storyteller.
Q: What is in your inspiration?
A: Mostly memory, but also the act of observation, seeing how people carry on in different situations.
Q: What are your challenges?
A: The images are based on sets I build and sometimes the story changes during this process, so I have to remain flexible and will to throw out an idea if it is not working. It’s heartbreaking to discard a piece that took weeks to create, but in the end these decisions allow me to move on to the next step in the process.
Q: How did you/do you choose your medium?
A: I love watching how light can create a mood. Photography uses light to create the perfect combination of reality mixed with fantasy. Personally, I can't create that effect with paint or pen. 
Q: Which artist has influenced you the most?
A:  So many artists, but if I have to choose, I would say, Francesca Woodman and recently the Brothers Quay films, Gregory Crewsdon and Simen Johan. But there are so many more.
