Jessica Simorte (b. 1988) is a Houston, Texas-based painter whose work serves as an ongoing examination of how creating art can function as a mode of place making. Utilizing shape and color, Jessica creates energetic abstractions that interpret the psychological bond to physical and invented space. Working at a small scale affords an intimacy to Jessica’s work, allowing the nuances of subtle color variations and delicate mark making to take center stage.
