Jessica Matier’s Education & Ideas
Jessica attended Parsons School of Design. In 2016, she departed from watercolour and collage practices, both clear influences in her current works, to pursue abstract painting. Her signature, illustrative style blends together alchemical and mythical symbols with highly expressive and gestural marks. The artist paints vigorously and without interruption to materialise her internal landscape. This exciting stream of consciousness onto canvas makes for utterly unique works, full of unpredictable tangents as well as moments of peace and harmony.
In 2019, Rutgers University acquired the painting, Natural Things, on display at the Camden Center of the Arts. Since, the artist has gone from strength to strength. Jessica’s abstract expressionist works have been in group exhibitions in New York City, New Jersey, Chicago and FSU Museum of the Arts, and The Other Art Fair, Brooklyn.
