Jessica Straus is a sculptor from the Boston area. Working primarily in carved and painted wood and incorporating found objects, she explores the poetry of unexpected juxtapositions between recognizable and invented forms. Alternating between narrative and abstraction, Straus's well crafted sculpture is infused with a quirky, yet subtle, humor and a finely tuned sense of aesthetics. Her studio is in the Brickbottom Artists Building in Somerville, MA. Her artwork is represented by the Boston Sculptors Gallery in the SOWA district of Boston. You can get the latest updates on her exhibitions and other art news by checking out her Facebook page.
I am participating in the Isles Arts Initiative with collaborative work done with Antoinette Winters. Our installation will be on view at Boston Sculptors Gallery July 22 – Aug 16, 2015 in the exhibition entitled “34” in reference to the Boston Harbor Islands.
I recently installed 9 sculptures at the Davistown Museum in Liberty, ME.
My work is included in "Off the Wall" at the Danforth Museum, June 7 - August 2, 2015
