WITCHES Artist Residency Exhibition
New works by Jesse Moretti
Reception on Thursday, April 16, 6pm
Jesse Moretti uses illusionistic techniques to play with the space between flatness and dimensionality in her vibrant, geometric abstractions. Large strokes, saturated gradients and hard edges characterize Moretti’s paintings, prints, and sculptures. She draws on aesthetics associated with op-art, graphic design, and digital manipulation tools. According to Moretti, her cast of floating, colliding forms reference “architecture, landscape, design and myth, reimagining them to become something other,” as she has said “I am interested in how historical reference may collapse into the present and create a proposition towards and alternate conception of cultural objects."

In January 2015, the WITCHES Artist Residency began at Mana Contemporary in New Jersey. The three-month collaboration with Eileen Kaminsky Family Foundation (ESKFF) is culminating in a month-long rotating exhibition in Brooklyn. Throughout April, the six female artists-in-residence will inhabit Stream Gallery, presenting new work they created in Jersey City. Film screenings, performances, and abbreviated solo exhibitions will inhabit the intimate space through April 26th.
