Jess Riva Cooper - Chaos to Ordered Spaces
As Jess mentioned while I was filming her, she uses her ceramic figures as an avatar so they have been pretty much being her likeness. The mysterious chaos had also expressed from her art. During the interview, I asked her to show me the sketches behind her ceramic work to explore the secret behind her artwork. As you can see from the film, they are cut into interesting shapes. She said she likes to look at the 2-dimensional work in the same way as the 3-dimensional ceramic work she've created - the curves and space.
To me, her works are beyond the beautiful figures. I love the mythical stories and "magical realism" behind her work that she wants to tell to her viewers.
