"Carving, cutting, breaking, shaping, tracing, folding, skinning"
If you've ever seen Jessica Harrison's work, I'm sure you did a double take. All of her work visually interrupts a familiar object with her grotesque obsession with the human body, especially the viscera. She creates and manipulates a human flesh like material to make mini-furniture, sculpts mini mouths into flowers, or applies fly legs as fake lashes.
In her latest works she uses traditional, once adored, antique figurines and re-forms them to expose their insides-- leaving a clear message of transgression and shows a glimpse of the artist's psyche.
