Jessica Eaton

Jessica Eaton will join us for a live interview on the September 6th show! Jessica uses experimental analog photography techniques that lead us to question the reality of the visible world. The cube is one of her central motifs, and her enigmatic images often reference hard-edge abstraction.

She currently has an exhibition entitled Iterations up at Antoine Ertaskiran Gallery until October 6th.

Marisa is an artist who works with photography, often creating portraits of women that both question and borrow from conventions of representation. She recently spent time as an artist-in-residence of the McCord Museum combing through the William Notman Photographic Archives, and is currently presenting an exhibition at the museum based on this research: In The Studio With Notman.
