CFAR Live: Inside with Jessica Jackson Hutchins

Friday, May 29, 2020 at 12:00pm


On Friday, May 29 at noon, join the Center for Art Research on Instagram Live for an inside visit with CFAR Affiliate Artist Jessica Jackson Hutchins.

Jessica Jackson Hutchins (b. 1971) lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Hutchins’s expressive and intuitive studio practice produces dynamic sculptural installations, collages, paintings, and large-scale ceramics, all hybrid juxtapositions of the handmade. As evidence of the artist’s dialogue with items in her studio, these works are a means by which the artist explores the intimacy of the mutual existence between art and life. Her transformations of everyday household objects, from furniture to clothing, are infused with human emotion and rawness, and also show a playfulness of material and language that is both subtle and ambitious. Based upon a willingly unmediated discourse between artist, artwork and viewer, Hutchins’s works ultimately serve to refigure an intimate engagement with materiality and form.
