A SOLO EXHIBITION BY JESSICA LIBOR @ ATRIA
Born in 1987, Jessica Libor spent her early years letting imagination run free; playing dress up and building fairy huts under the fruit orchards in the backyard. Her earliest memory is with a pencil in her hand, drawing. Her identity has always been as an artist. She received my Master of Fine Arts from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2014. Since then, she has been painting, curating and teaching. She is most inspired to capture portraits of humans and how we relate to the natural world around us. Jessica strives to capture the energy in us that is so unique to each individual, but also universal; the elegant spark that unites all living things. Myths and legends tell the story of where we came from and who we see ourselves as. Libor’s aesthetic is influenced by the Rococo and Pre-Raphaelite periods of art history, as well as theater, set design, high fashion culture. The feminine figure is central in carrying the piece or telling a story, and her surroundings often mirror her state of mind. In all her work, she strives to create an enveloping world that is vivid, compelling and emotionally complex. She would like it if her viewers could step inside this world and fall in love, if only for a moment, with the moment portrayed. Jessica speaks about her work, “It is this portrayal of strength and potential, this perfect moment of inspiration within an imperfect world, that I aim to capture in my work.”
