Day 54: Jessica Reese

Jessica Laurel Reese is best known for using steel rod to create dynamic lines, forms, and planes that speak to her fascination with the natural world and the human form. She constructs each piece by bending steel rod by hand and using oxygen and acetylene gases to weld her points of contact. This work dances with the tension between two and three-dimensions, bringing us into our tactile and spatial minds as our eyes move around the canvas. Using a cold, industrial material such as steel, Reese successfully brings a softness and natural beauty to a normally utilitarian substance. Obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture with Distinction from California College of the Arts in San Francisco, Reese has been living and working creatively in Jerome, Arizona since 2013.
