Biography

The intimate disclosure of Jessica Jackson Hutchins' personal life is both the conceptual and formal basis of her work. Her use of everyday personal objects and materials hint at the dramas of love and family, yet she keeps her references oblique and mysterious, allowing formal qualities free rein to create their own abstract and tactile languages. Her ceramics are painstakingly moulded by hand, their forms shifting from the refined to the more rudimentary. Tattered soft furnishings sagging with familiar dents or knocked about tables and chairs provide the seats for these ceramics that are redolent with autobiography and anthropomorphism.
