biography

Jessica Stockholder was born in Seattle in 1959. She lives and works in Chicago.

Stockholder is one of the most influential artists working today in the United States. She works with accumulations of mundane materials (furniture, chairs, fabrics, kitchen tools, plastic boxes, lamps). Using paint and color together with objects from the world, her art transforms the viewerʼs attention to perception, creating circumstance for familiar space and objects to be seen with fresh eyes. The altered relationship between objects, combined and her unusual sense of color are orchestrated within a pictorial framework. The work generates various moods and carries forth an abstract sort of narrative that can be understood as analogous to the flow of sound over time in music. Within this structure, and making use of the illusionistic space generated by the paintingʼs surface, Stockholderʼs work allows for the experience of fantasy and fiction.
