Jesse Moretti uses illusionistic techniques to play with the space between flatness and dimensionality in her vibrant, geometric abstractions. Large strokes, saturated gradients, and hard edges characterize Moretti’s paintings, prints, and sculptures. She draws on aesthetics associated with op art, graphic design, and digital manipulation tools. According to Moretti, her cast of floating, colliding forms reference “architecture, landscape, design and myth, reimagining them to become something other,” as she has said. “I am interested in how historical references may collapse into the present and create a proposition towards an alternate conception of cultural objects.”
