Jessalynn08, Jessica Lee, is a fine artist working in mixed media collage. She is a former member of the King’s Courtyard Artist Collective and exhibited her work at their gallery, 124 East King Street, York, until December of 2019. She has also been a featured artist at Small Star Art House, York Blue Moon and the York Art Association’s Sally Little Danyo Members’ Sales Gallery. Her abstract work has been exhibited at NASA Goddard in Greenbelt, MD, and at the Art Science Gallery in Austin, Texas. Lee focuses on textures, lines, shapes and “surface depth.” A sentiment that has held much personal meaning for her is in the Nietzche quote, “There are no beautiful surfaces without great and terrible depth.” Using this as a metaphor for her own personal struggles and triumphs, Lee flattens the picture plane and creates instead a depth to her surfaces through translucent layers.
