Jessica writes, "From two heads growing out of one neck to a lone bird exiting an empty, bald skull, my portraits have taken some whimsical turns thanks to the encouragement and inspiration of Alphonse van Woerkom. In the countless number of semesters I’ve taken his portrait class, Alphonse has fanned the flames of my personal weirdness, all the while sneaking in lessons about art theory and technical accomplishment. Combining all three has shown me that you don’t have to take art seriously to take art seriously. I’ve gotten so much from Continuing Education at SVA—including a disembodied clay head that’s staring at me as I write this.”

See more of Jessica's work at her website. Visit us to see this artwork in our exhibition spaces at 209 East 23rd Street and 380 Second Avenue, 8th floor, through the month of March. And see more updates on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages!
