Jessica Stockholder

°1959, Seattle (US) – lives and works in Chicago (US) 

Jessica Stockholder is known for site-specific works that challenge established boundaries, institutional and formal. Her work straddles many disciplinary lines, and she employs a range of materials and techniques. A recurring theme is the use of multiple, layered images to create micro-spaces within one’s field of vision, pulling apart the pictorial frame so as to include the larger context around it. As with her more well-known work, there is almost always an element of the objet trouvé. The mash-up of the intentional and the arbitrary is one of many organizing principles Stockholder employs in all of her works.
