Jenna Rain Warwick is an emerging Artist and published Writer living and working on the unceded Kulin lands of Birraranga/ Naarm. Born in Mossman, Queensland, a proud Luritja Woman, Jenna’s published work speaks to her desire to champion the creative imagination of First Nations peoples. Jenna graduated with a Bachelor of Art History and Curating from Monash University in 2021 . She is adamant that critical engagement with First Nation’s work should come from First Nations voices first and foremost. Jenna’s work seeks to challenge the notion of objectivity believing that objectivity is not an absolute state and that it may only somewhat occur when the authors’ relativity to subject is actualised, to be objective to the world is inaccessible colonial desire, impossible and somewhat short sighted. She has written for Un Projects, Art and Australia and others.
