Quoting in part:
“New York City transplant Jen Fries utilizes a storytelling approach in her art. The Diver is intended to convey a sense of ‘taking a leap.'”
“She describes her piece, stating that ‘It was inspired by watching Olympic divers in competition over the years, and I hope it captures all the possible contexts attached to that moment when the diver leaves the board and does what she’s going to do: energy, passion, freedom, danger, hope, commitment, motion and emotion.'”
