Jessica Vaughn (MFA '11 candidate) in Exhibition at DuBois College House, University of Pennsylvania, Opening April 5th, 7pm

In "Redress", Jessica Vaughn (MFA '11 candidate) presents photographs and works on panel made during her graduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania. She explores printmaking and photography in unconventional ways by altering the surface of her works through processes of drawing, painting and erasure. Vaughn’s work starts with a recognizable image, found photographs from magazines, newspaper sources or ones that she has taken. She combines different processes together to create connectivity and analysis in images where it is generally assumed none exists. Such is the case in her recent work where she uses 16 th century Dutch woodcuts and African American hairpieces, or installation set-ups of cardboard banker boxes, iconic red plaid plastic bags and faux star galaxy backdrops. Her sense of abstraction has developed from translating information that is often recognized and seen as monolithic into something new.
