Jess is an artist and designer living and working in the Bay Area
I'm interested in how materials and artifacts collect and accumulate debris, and the new forms they assume over time. I explore the idea of objects either growing by themselves, or being manipulated into something new and obscure. As these objects disintegrate and evolve, their moment in time becomes ambiguous, and their interaction with the landscape and atmosphere can blur the subtle distinctions between the old world and a potential new world. I bring these ancient and new forms together in my work by combining traditional printmaking and textile techniques.
