Jessa Gilbert is a visual Artist using painting as a primary means of articulating movement and action. Her artwork uses color, shape, and line to create a rhythm that emphasizes change within each painting.
She investigates different ways of representing action and evolution similar to the ever-changing world. Each painting holds an expression of motion, drawing influence from ways in which objects and figures move through space and time, depicting a history of action on the same plane at the same time.
Jessa relocated from Vermont to Vancouver in 2013, where she currently lives and works. Originally from New York, she graduated from the University of Vermont with a degree in Studio Art, Art History, and Sociology.
Her work has been exhibited internationally, notably in New York, Vermont, California, and Montréal, Canada.
