Solo show UP at Gallery 224 of Harvard Ceramics
Opening - September 5th with a reception 5-8pm closes October 16th
This show is in conclusion of my Residency at the Office for the Arts at Harvard Ceramics. Title: Wishful Thinking - A Narrative of a 21st century Naturalist
Jessica Brandl, a native Midwesterner, works in ceramics, drawing and, painting.
Set in landscapes with looming architecture, turbulent skies, and misplaced objects, Brandl’s work exposes historical and eccentric places engulfed in psychological scenarios - both sinister and sublime. Surprising spatial arrangements and disjunctive scale shifts support a voyeuristic sense of seeing things from the inside out. Her current work serve as pointed souvenirs of history and the path to American-ness.
Jessica Brandl received her MFA from The Ohio State University and BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute. She is the recipient of awards including the Visiting McKnight Resident Artist, Windgate Scholar and the Rudy Autio inspiration Grant.
