About the Art

What the artist saysEmploying mixed media is essential to my studio practice as each medium represents a different mode of thinking and expression. I habitually create a movement to symbolize the constant and inevitable changes we face.
Why we like itJessica’s abstracts are immediate, gestural, and emotional. They depict a complex cerebral landscape that simultaneously suggests themes from the natural world.
Where we hang itJessica’s paintings are all about the details. Hang these works anywhere you can appreciate the way she can manipulate her gesture through a variety of mediums.

About the Artist

Jessica Matier
Jessica’s work straddles abstract expressionism and surrealism. The driving thoughts are surreal as she paints from her subconscious and fills it in with perceptions of her environment. She simultaneously examines the idea of perception itself, creating images to acquire self-healing wisdom. In search of a universal truth, she endeavors to balance the known with the unknown synonymously within the past and present.
Jessica Matier attended Parsons School of Design. In 2016, she departed from watercolor and collage practices to pursue a mixed-media approach to abstract painting. Her work has been shown in group exhibitions in New York City, New Jersey, Chicago, FSU Museum of the Arts, and The Other Art Fair, Brooklyn. In 2019, her painting “Natural Things” was acquired by Rutgers University and is currently on display at the Camden Center of the Arts. Matier was born in South Korea in 1985. At three months old, she was adopted and raised in New Jersey. In 2022, she relocated to Kansas City, MO, where she continues to work.

“I create order and clarity through my imagination and ideas surrounding philosophy and psychology to serve others in their search for contentment, joy, and meaning.”
