Jessica Hargreaves

As It Ever Was
July 2 - July 31, 2016
Reception: Friday, July 8th 6-9PM

Figureworks is pleased to present Jessica Hargreaves’ first solo exhibition in New York. This show highlights her current series of paintings with installations of her decorative wallpaper, pillows and wearable accessories. 

Jessica’s paintings focus on innocent children and their pets entwined with black and white sculptural relief elements of fighting, flirting, fornicating adults and animals. Combining these conflicting perspectives skillfully investigates many aspects of our complex psyche. 

In Jessica’s installations, wallpaper and pillows represent adult self-absorbsion. Humorously cross-referencing the issues of depression and death, a nude man slumbers with a fish patterned duvet, inspired from the phrase “sleeping with the fishes”. In a complimentary piece, a woman is intimately kissing these same fish. Sculpted footwear and jewelry using precious gems and metals connect the above ideas with self-adornment, allowing one to actually wear these emotions.  

The gallery provides an ideal venue for Jessica’s installation/exhibition with its intimate rooms and emphasis on the human form in all its beauty and emotions.
