The Art of Jessica Ward

by JL SchnabelPosted on

Carefully rendered, otherworldly women appear sheathed in long lengths of massive hair in artist L.A. based Jessica Ward’s works. Often carrying an edge of political commentary, specifically focusing on the issue of women’s unhealthy relationships with their bodies, the work also radiates a searing beauty. While women are often used as symbols of grace and beauty within art, here their forms are used as metaphors, exposing the hidden aspects of eating disorders and exploring the image of hair as a psychological element of control and emotion. Take a peek at more of the intriguing work below.
