Join us for our Opening
Sunday, Feb. 8 from 3-6 pm
The primary focus of Jessica Gondek’s work is abstract stemming from an interest in technology, geometry, machine aesthetics, nature, and architecture. The exhibit Enterprising Machines explores a dichotomous relationship between the hand and the machine that has evolved over time. This creative journey has taken Gondek from works engaged in 3D modeling to create forms and compositions to recent explorations of gendered domestic machines from the early part of the twentieth century referencing trade catalogues and actual utilitarian objects. These works hold in common a marriage of both traditional media and digitally mediated computer approaches intrinsic to the development of the images. The mechanical forms within these compositions are simultaneously transformed asserting an animated physical presence and internal narrative.
