Jessica Sinks is a Dallas, Texas-based mixed media artist. Her works center around visual puns and iconic images that play off of found materials to create flat and often comedic figures. Jessica's cutouts began as an alternative to sketching and nod to the silhouettes and storytelling of Javanese shadow puppet theater. With a background in conservation, she has described the act of cutting up the books she uses for her source material as a "tantalizingly forbidden act." Sinks received her MFA in Studio Art from NYU in 2019.
