Water and Thread

Jessica rips and repairs her own paintings. She lets each line choose its own path, taking the painting in one direction or another, bounded by the edges of her sewing machine. She also stitches without thread, letting light through the punctures of the needle. For Jessica, these works are about reparation, light, and accident. Click on the image for details.
