Surface

Jessie Vogel

Surface is an exhibition of work spanning from 2012- 2018, showing my love of material and their playful compositions.  My sculptures and installations begin by trying to decipher the visual grammar of materials. Through our senses, we all have an intuitive understanding of the material world around us. As an artist who works physically, touch is an integral part of my process when I choose certain mediums. I call this tactability.

Tactability is my word to characterize the mental and physical sense of touch. I am interested in our desire or avoidance to investigate through touch. With this in mind, I want to bring the intuitive understanding of materials into a realm that is imaginary.
