ART WORLD CRED
This fashionista is all about “deciphering illusions of grandeur.” Or is she? While Jaime Lynn Henderson’s artist statement describes an interest in bible stories, glamour and self-adornment, her facebook looks more like an excuse for her to dress up in tacky beauty-pageant couture and take pictures with her hunky boyfriend. All in the name of religion, of course. “Mine is an atmosphere filled with cocktail parties, jewelry trees, romance, forest clearings, evening gowns, morality, animals, drama, beauty, and a oneness with God,” she writes of her work. Oh goodie.
Henderson has participated in a fair number of low level exhibitions in Chicago. Her illustrations satirizing scenes from the bible aren't all bad, but truly hokey. The show is her big break…and a chance to meet SJP! We bet she was the most excited about that one.
JLH Creative Enterprises, a “Christmas gift from her boyfriend,” is Henderson’s license to self-indulge. Picture endless drawings of her fashion designs and posed photographs of herself, and that's Henderson.
We're not sure, but we notice she's friends with the show's other fashionplate competitor, Jaclyn Santos. Birds of a feather?
