Inquire

Jessie Edelman

Born 1986 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Jessie Edelman explores meaningful issues from throughout the history of painting that have an impact on contemporary art. Her recent work has taken the role of the observer or spectator as the painting’s subject. She turns the viewer’s orientation to the mise en scène, such as a rocky ocean outcrop or a meadow and explores the position of the figure within it. The work spans a high-low range of image viewing, from film stills to travel photos to Impressionist paintings.

Jessie Edelman received her MFA from Yale University and her BA from Skidmore College. She has had solo exhibitions at Andrew Rafacz Gallery in Chicago and Robert Blumenthal Gallery in New York, and was in a two-person exhibition with David Humphrey at The Suburban in Milwaukee.  “Stills from ‘The End of Summer,'” her first exhibition with Denny Gallery, is in September 2016.
