Centraltrak presents Jessie Budd: "Identity: Digital Self" opening reception
Centraltrak will present the opening exhibition for UT Dallas M.F.A., Jessie Budd. Budd explores concepts of identity through experimental arts. Combining photographs, video and soft sculpture she creates alien life forms and scenes. Budd uses a combination of self-portraiture, illustration and physical materials to create alien characters and scenes. Bodies are deconstructed, and then rebuilt with flat shapes devoid of human emotion. These bright and playful shapes are built upon with soft fabric textures, adding a third dimension to the otherwise uniform images. Each work is nostalgic to the artist, relating to personal digital experiences in what she considers the age of entertainment escapism.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through June 24.
