Jessica Jacobi

Jessica Jacobi, who hails from Lubbock, Texas, and has a fine arts degree in studio arts from the University of Texas at Austin, has always held a strong interest in the way the body is handled in the human psyche and within contemporary American society. She also holds a fascination for the darker side of human imagination and perspective. Combining her interests, her work explores how the darker and somewhat macabre elements of the human experience can possess beautiful qualities. She uses an arrangement of forming techniques with metals to produce pieces that suggest parts of the body, and her combination of form and rich surface textures draws in the viewer.
