Jess’ practice is spontaneous. She wakes up in the morning, not knowing where her work shall lead her throughout the day.
Jess knows that she has one thing in mind- flesh.
Her work is the excess flesh she does not want on her body
Flesh to her is a malleable substance and she’s utterly fascinated by its violent, grotesque carnality that fuels her work.
She feels that the hand of the artist is indeed as violent as the hand of the butcher. As delicate as the hand of a seamstress and as intimate as the hand of the surgeon.
Following her studies, she plans to take a year out and possibly study surgeries from direct observation. This she believes will provide her with further experience that she can take forward into an MA/MFA in the near future.
