Jessica Brandl

Jessica Brandl holds an MFA in Ceramics from The Ohio State University and a BFA from The Kansas City Art Institute. Brandl was recognized as one of six Emerging Artists at the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts in 2017 and the recipient of the Zanesville Prize for best vessel.  Her work has been shown nationally and internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including “The Zanesville Prize for Contemporary Ceramics”, “Unconventional Clay: Engaged in Change”, NCECA Biannual invitational, hosted at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Her most recent work investigates the vessel as canvas and sculptural container for expressing human pathos and sentiment. 

Jessica resides in Helena Montana, where she is the Tuant Fellow artist-in-residence at the Archie Bray Foundation.

Statement:

Through the narrative framework of the hero’s tale I utilize this historic story arch to describe my own journey through grief and what it means to cope with being an orphan, a woman, and an artist from middle American. I take an archeological approach to my construction of narrative; utilizing objects in still life and conveying meaning with composition and proximity.

The retention of void space as vessel or container is important, recognizing an obtuse utility associated with my own lower class upbringing and a more conceptual repository for my thoughts and complex emotions to reside within the crafted space. A description through images permits me to explore and give vent to emotions I wish to express, while reserving a certain degree of ambiguity to both communicate and contain universal human sentiment.
