Chaos and beauty by Jessica Drenk
Jessica Drenk is an American artist raised in Montana, where she developed an appreciation for the natural world that remains an important inspiration to her artwork today.
Tactile and textural, her sculptures highlight the chaos and beauty that can be found in simple materials. Jessica Drenk’s work is also influenced by systems of information and the impulse to develop an encyclopedic understanding of the world.
Jessica Drenk’s work can be found internationally in private collections, as well as corporate and university collections within the US.
She has been the recipient of several awards, including an Artist Project Grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, and the International Sculpture Center’s Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award.
Her work has recently become a part of the Fidelity art collection and the Yale University Art Gallery. A working artist since 2007, Drenk’s home and studio are currently in Florida.
