Congratulations to German and Fine Arts Major Jessie Donovan, who was the recipient of the Undergraduate Resident Arts Exhibition Award at the 2017 Visual Art & Design Showcase here at MU. For more information, click here.
Jessie's body of work includes etchings of humans and plants, paired with fragments of written observations regarding psychological behavior, criminal records and medical documents. Her work is not editioned or titled because each print is unique, in an attempt to inhibit the print's ability to authoritatively define through word. Each time she prints the same image, she applies ink-jet print outs of different texts and documents, thus never allowing one the same text to define her images. You can see more of her work here at this website.
