Contemporary colorful painting by Houston-based artist Jessica Simorte. The work features a central abstracted still life of a tree set against a light yellow background with ethereal floating shapes. Signed, titled, and dated by the artist on the reverse. Currently unframed, but options are available.
Jessica Simorte completed her MFA with an emphasis in painting at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning in 2014. She is currently living in Texas where she coordinates Sam Houston State's University's WASH Program and teaches within their new MFA Program. She has shown regionally, nationally, and internationally and has been included in numerous publications including multiple issues of New American Paintings, Art Maze Mag, and Maake Magazine. Most recently, she was named a “noteworthy artist” in New American Paintings issue #162. Significant exhibitions include solos at Gallery Urbane in Dallas and Virginia Commonwealth University, as well as inclusion in shows at Big Medium in Austin, CICA Museum in Gimpo, South Korea, and Trotter & Sholer in NYC. When she is not teaching, parenting, or painting, she’s probably dreaming of adopting another dog.
