Jessica David studied fine art and art history at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn before becoming a painting conservator. She exhibits regularly with Connecticut Women Artists and the Canton Artists’ Guild. Jessica’s subjects are drawn from personal sources and nostalgic sites; typically, run-down locations possessing a magnetic, if derelict, character. Her paintings are composed from life studies and photographic references, worked up with oil and acrylic spray paint in an effort to merge memory with materials into something new, independent from its original context. Her point of view is that of an outsider, peering through a window or haze at locations of little significance but individual beauty.
