Jessica Jokhi is an abstract painter and digital media/ print media artist, based in Chicago. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
She creates large-scale abstract paintings that focus on form and color. Her paintings are based in action and gesture as an intuitive, cathartic process, which allows her to create an enveloping atmosphere emphasizing methodical line work. These gestures and formations reveal organization in erratic landscapes, created in a fugue-like state.
Her digital work is created utilizing collage to combine digitally manipulated found photographs, and digital painting to create bold material contrasts that evoke an idealistic romanticism of yearning in isolation.
