The Naked Truth
Call for Entries Accepted Artists
Artist Jessica Grimshaw
Los Angeles, California, USA
The human body is a functional mixed media sculpture that houses multiple systems made up of solids, liquids and gasses. Both the human body and collage interest me because they involve different elements that, when functioning together, create a final outcome. “Human Scaffolding is the result of using collage techniques to create an anatomical view of the muscles, sinews, and bones.
Collage has become my preferred technique, because I don’t wish to see images as mass produced visual representations meant to be passively consumed and forgotten. My artist process consists of breaking down pages from magazines into their base elements and re-purposing them for new life. Each piece is an opportunity for a static representation to take on a new persona.
