We are pleased to announce an exhibition Shelters by Jesse Ng on May 25 (Thu) to May 28 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Jesse Ng is a visual artist based out of Brooklyn, NY. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at NYU in 2011 and has since shown her work in various spaces around New York.
Her body of work is an exploration of the landscape and their interpretation as architectural and isometric objects. From a fascination with scientific illustration, the environment is converted to observable specimens by balancing organic forms with the rigidity of line and structures. Her work expresses our need to comprehend and control our environments but also be unconsciously over taken by them through memory or emotion.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
This series of paintings is a playful disassembly and exploration of the homes in rural Itoshima.
It’s an analysis of built structures and their relationship with the surrounding vegetation and natural growths as elements of both design and functionality.
