In Conversation: Artist Jessica Dessner with Trish Brennan, Head of Fine Art and Applied Art, CIT Crawford College of Art and Design. Thursday 17 September 4.00pm.
Jessica Dessner’s new series of drawings are explorations of landscapes and windows as frames for inadvertent still lifes. She works from original photographs taken with an old Olympus analogue camera that allows light bleeds amongst other mechanical uncertainties. Dessner’s hyper realistic drawings are poetic observations on how objects are assembled on the thresholds of domestic life, reimagining the deeper narratives behind such thresholds.
