Color As Comfort by Jessica Poundstone
Rare Device is proud to present Color As Comfort by Jessica Poundstone.
“Color As Comfort,” is a collection of work by artist Jessica Poundstone that explores the wonderful ways color can make us feel. The show includes pigment prints on paper, as well as new paintings and art objects. This is Jessica’s first solo exhibition.
Show Dates: Friday, November 19, 2021 to Sunday, January 23, 2022
I love that surrounding ourselves with images and objects we love is a way to create our own personal support system of symbols. As we build our collections over many years, each piece — whether it’s a piece of art or a rock from a sidewalk in Paris — has the power to create and store fond memories, good vibes, and positive energy.
My highest hope is that my work — which is primarily about exploring how color can make us feel — will be part of the self-care practice of bringing beauty and meaning into our spaces. I want my work to be a continuous source of joy, playfulness, and meaning for my collectors. Color as comfort.
In addition to showing my fine art prints, I’m also thrilled to share new original works — paintings and art objects I’m calling totems. Both have small footprints and big hearts :)
