Jessica Stockholder

August 26, 2013

The artistic practice of American artist Jessica Stockholder is based on the exploration of spatial relations between the interventions that are seemingly disconnected. Her colorful site-specific interventions consisting of carefully arranged wall and floor pieces function like paintings in space that unravel the artist’s formal manipulations of color and composition. By experimenting with an array of materials, Stockholder produces installations, sculptures, and collages through which she examines the reality of things coming out of the realm of consumerism and issues specifically related to art-making.

Stockholder studied painting at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, and received an MFA from Yale University. Her work was exhibited internationally, and she holds the position of the Director of Graduate Studies in Sculpture at Yale University.
