Jess Lincoln is a student in her final year of a BFA, major in Fine Art, minor in Art History at NSCAD University. Primarily a painter and printmaker, her interests lie in the capacity of these processes to produce objects that both open into a narrative and remain static, are tied to their histories while also inherently material and present. Figuration dominates her work, investigating interactions and relationships, with an emphasis on the strange, humorous, and gently tragic moments of our interpersonal lives.
The book form appeals to the artist in that offers an immediate bodily relationship to the viewer; it is small, it must be held and touched. It also offers an opportunity to direct the temporal experience of still images in relation to each other, creating narrative, rhythm and pacing. And finally, the capacity of printed matter to be produced independently and distributed widely pleases the artist's anti-authoritarian leanings.
