Jessica Cebra: TOUCH

Jessica Cebra: TOUCH

A few months into the shelter-in-place period, Jessica Cebra had the opportunity to move to a more remote, coastal town in California. As she connected to the nature around her, she began to feel her sanity reserves be replenished and nourished.

In futures, Cebra reflects upon her surroundings - the nearby oceans and their fluctuating wave cycles and tides; the blazing wildfires that were just starting their season as Cebra moved; her own backyard garden - and meditates on how human behavior impacts these forces of nature.

Jessica Cebra, from southern California, graduated from the Corcoran College of Art + Design in 2006, and lived and worked in the Washington, D.C. area until the end of 2017. She also studied Library and Archival Science, and Historic Preservation at the University of Maryland which has inspired themes of permanence and ephemerality, preservation and loss, in her work. Jessica is now based in the Bay Area of her home state.
