This series of sculptures, drawings and paintings were, in great part, brought about as a response to the many disconcerting and unbelievable circumstances that have become commonplace recently. It has been difficult to create artwork in the midst of unprecedented disquiet, so these pieces were attempts to use the frustration and uncertainty we have been facing as a form of small resistance and personal countermeasure. Jessica Dalva
Jessica Dalva is a sculptor and illustrator, living and working in the Bay Area of California. She uses a variety of materials and techniques, many of which stem from her work as a fabricator for film and television. Many of her pieces feature elements repurposed from their past lives; bits of fabric, metal, and timber collected from antique fairs or gathered from the woods.
