This is the first Artist in Residence at Agitator Cooperative Gallery featuring Jessica Brackett, a Chicago-based artist with ties in Los Angeles, Portland, and London. She works in sculpture, painting, and installation. Through her work, she seeks to falsify the familiar and elevate the mundane. Working in still life, she uses plants, insects, and water as metaphor for the human condition.
She received her BFA in Painting and Art History from the Kansas City Art Institute.
Her paintings can be seen throughout the US, and Asia, as well as featured 3 years in a row on Emmy-Winning hit television series Portlandia.
