Jessica Campbell: Watching the Abandoned Blinds Store Across the Street

Jessica Campbell is a cartoonist, visual artist and writer who is interested in how combining seemingly disparate media, subject matter and tone can be a tool for research and the production of knowledge. Her satirical drawings, comics and textiles expose everyday experiences that reveal the sexism women have faced throughout history, and presently. She primarily uses carpet to create figurative works that visually mimic latch hook rugs but deviate from this medium’s precedent in their subject matter, depiction style and scale.
