  • Jessica Calderwood

    "My most recent series combines flower/botanical forms with fragments of the human body in order to address issues surrounding gender, domesticity, and identity.

These anthropomorphic beings are at once, powerful and powerless, beautiful and absurd, inflated, and amputated." Jessica ...
