JESSICA TECKEMEYER

Through sculpture I focus on the complexity of human behavior driven by both instinct and cultural influences. The human condition is domesticated; we are animals. As social creatures, we combat reason versus instinct. Through translating a human experience into the form of an animal, we look at ourselves from another viewpoint. My process includes research into the marvelous and strange from ancient mythology to contemporary monster theory which reveal the ways our social, creative, and psychological development relates to animals.  

Each artwork utilizes human-like eyes and smooth skin to provide viewers with clues to the introspective nature of my ideation. The work embodies a symbolic language in which I explore themes including inner confrontation, spirituality, vulnerability, and death. I am interested in the complexity of human behavior through our celebratory moments to disastrous events. In observing the extremes both the dark and light of humanity are present. In understanding our polarities, we establish a new sense of awareness. -JT
