In this wide-ranging interview, artist Jessica Jackson Hutchins shares about her time as artist-in-residence at Bullseye Portland. She explains how she became interested in glass, how that led her to Bullseye, and how her thoughts on art and glass art have developed during her residency.
Jessica Jackson Hutchins lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Hutchins’ expressive and intuitive studio practice produces dynamic sculptural installations, collages, paintings, and large-scale ceramics, all hybrid juxtapositions of the handmade. Based upon a willingly unmediated discourse between artist, artwork, and viewer, Hutchins’ works ultimately serve to refigure an intimate engagement with materiality and form. Her work has been included in the Whitney Biennial. She is represented by Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York.
