Jessica Stockholder uses discount store-bought and mass-produced materials to build her monumental sculptures and installations, which the Wall Street Journal has called “Frankensteinian.” By constructing works that present carefully choreographed formal elements, Stockholder says that she aims to “present the material world in a way that is understandable.” Her works are rich with color, often coated in bright and plasticky paint, elaborating an influence of Robert Rauschenberg’s assemblage sculptures.
