Barfly: Jessica Jorgensen

Jessica Jorgensen is a curious observer with a necessity to document the visual absurdities and narratives she sees repeated through her everyday life.

Her work explores the figures' ability to carry emotion and story through the body, as well as the underlying figurative nature of objects personified. These observations are sometimes simple, sometimes serious, often spiritual, even silly at times, but her drawings and paintings are always incarnations of these observations and the emotional connections attached.

In the "Barfly" series, Jessica documents Seattle's bar scene with a visually striking acuity and appreciation of light. She captures bartenders and patrons alike, telling their stories through her atmospheric works.

Shades Triangle

In the middle of a converging force of social movements, two musicians were birthed shining future rays down from their spaceship as they spoke of the upcoming doom if we didn't break the cycle. Armed with fat synthesizers and robot drum machines, they interfaced into all the ears of those that would listen. Their message was simple: "Be cool to each other and then max and relax".

Closing Reception for Georgetown Atelier Student Exhibition

Georgetown Atelier presents the student work of the Full-Time Atelier. By teaching the foundations of classical art as the building blocks for professional artists, this program is designed to develop visually inventive gallery and industry artists alike.

The work represents the three-tiered curriculum taught at Georgetown Atelier—Tier I: Drawing Foundations, Tier II: Painting Foundation with optional Digital Painting, and Tier III: Advanced Painting and Thesis Projects. Throughout the program, the students are training their eye in order to see and capture the subtleties of what they are observing. As they work towards becoming more accurate in their observations, they are creating a visual library from which they can work constructively and inventively. The program lays the foundations of observational and constructive methods from which the students are then able to build upon to achieve their individual goals.
