Jessica Dickinson

Jessica Dickinson, emerging American artists

Built up in layers on a plaster-like, limestone polymer ground, New York artist Jessica Dickinson's serene abstractions are "... developed slowly through stages of meditative procedures, abrupt change, and actions of chance".

On close inspection, cumulative processes of addition, erasure, sanding back and staining are clearly (and beautifully) apparent; from further afield, the works assume the depth and luminosity of a fresco.

Jessica Dickinson, emerging artists

Dickinson's quest in both her painting and works on paper to "... open a gradually revealing field for optical intensities, luminous intervals, individual discoveries, and opportunities for slowness" is certainly starting to attract serious attention amongst collectors.

Marked with an unusual gravitas and resonance, these are works made to contemplate.
