Jessie Edelman explores meaningful issues from throughout the history of art that have an impact on contemporary art. Her recent work has taken the role of the observer or spectator as the painting’s subject. She turns the viewer’s orientation to the mise en scène, such as a rocky ocean outcrop or a meadow and explores the position of the figure within it. The work spans a high-low range of image viewing, from film stills to travel photos to Impressionist paintings.
Jessie Edelman was born in 1986 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She received her MFA in 2013 from Yale University and her BA in 2008 from Skidmore College. She has had solo exhibitions at Denny Gallery, Andrew Rafacz Gallery in Chicago and Robert Blumenthal in New York, and was in a two-person exhibition with David Humphrey at the Suburban in Milwaukee. Her work has been reviewed or featured in Brooklyn Magazine, Vogue and Artnet News.
