Jessica Drenk's exhibition Regeneration is a merging of science and material. Her sculptural work beautifully transforms the mundane everyday object into an expression of nature. Using objects like pencils, books, and even q-tips, her sculptures bring to life the qualities of nature we all appreciate; balance, harmony, repetition, and grace.
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet and engage with the artist personally as she installed and created two pieces on-site; Dentrite and Bibliophylm. I've noticed in the past that when I enjoy an artist's work, I generally enjoy the artist themselves and this was no exception. Jessica was truly a pleasure to get to know and work with.
As 2017 has now come to a close, I've taken some time to reflect on all the artists I've had a chance to meet and interact with over the past 9 months. From Yechel Gagnon at the beginning of season to Mabel Poblet and Thomas Jackson, each artist has left me with a different experience and understanding of the work that they do and the world that inspires them.
