The Dinner Club: Auteur Painting of Jennifer White Kuri

By Peter Frank, Curator, Art Writer & Critic

Kuri has brought to fruition a sequence of ten large paintings that portray a circle of acquaintances-become-friends, and do so by reflecting in great detail the facets of these women’s lives – reflecting their points of view, from those close (including one another), and from Kuri’s own knowledge and experience with them. These portrayals are not simply of people, but of lives.

The individuals Kuri depicts have met for dinner for years on a semi-regular basis in San Francisco. Their gatherings are more formal than coffee klatches, but certainly less so than the meetings of a membership club. The women come from varied backgrounds, although they are not far apart in social or economic standing, their places of origin are disparate, even exotic to one another. These are social women, but not necessarily society women; they assemble because they understand one another’s intellectual and spiritual restlessness.
