Maffia's art seeks the poetry in the mundane. She is excited by “the everyday” and honors the overlooked. She has been exhibiting her work throughout the US since 2009 and most recently participated in a show in Chelsea at the Denise Bibro Fine Art Gallery. Her work will be featured on the cover of Fabio Gironi's philosophy book Naturalizing Badiou: Mathematical Ontology and Structural Realism in December 2014 and several of her drawings can be found in the flat files of Pierogi gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
Jessica has been awarded three artist residencies this season at Byrdcliffe Art Colony, the Vermont Studio Center, and Brush Creek where she will continue working on her series of photorealistic pencil drawings of decay, cracks, and residue on walls. Jessica Maffia is a mixed media artist born and raised in New York City. She is honored to share her work with the readers of Duende.
