Jesse Greenberg is best known for his tactile bas-relief sculptures that mimic textures found in the body and in nature. Greenberg manipulates urethane plastic and resin with colored pigment to achieve an unusual yet uncanny consistency. He has participated in group shows at Johannes Vogt Gallery, Derek Eller Gallery, and Foxy Production, all in New York.

About Jesse Greenberg

Evoking oozing biological forms, liquid stained glass, and molecular processes with urethane resin and colored pigment, Jesse Greenberg produces process-oriented, tactile sculptures. Greenberg, who co-founded New York’s 247365 gallery, aims to explore how design dictates bodily experiences, most notably contemporary relationships with technology. His “Face Scan” series, for example, features plasma-esque resin sculptures that appear to undulate, droop, and collapse against their steel armatures. Simultaneously seductive and repulsive, the “Face Scan” works explore the limits of Greenberg’s chosen materials and address abstract notions of surveillance and communicative technologies. Many of Greenberg’s works are peppered with BB gun pellets, which the artist favors for their nondescript nature, recalling atoms or molecules, and evoking a sinister, violent beauty.
