JADE TOWNSEND

Born 1977, Iowa
Lives and works in Brooklyn, New York

“My current work is a range of drawings, sculptures and interactive installations that critique and re-imagine often confusing, absurd, and tragic realities of our society. By layering real and invented myths and buried meanings through a cast of visual characters who personify these stories, the work creates an ever-changing, dreamlike experience in its pursuit of conflicting themes such as contentment and rebellion, or altruism and greed.
The detailed, richly colored drawings offer unsettling and darkly humorous scenarios that inform the hand-made sculptures and farcical installations. In return, the installations feed and inform the drawings. Through this cycle, I create new worlds interconnected by underlying themes and recurring visual motifs. Within this world, any conflict and possible discomfort the viewer ultimately experiences arises from a heightened critical awareness of his/her own belief system. I’m trying to present new ways of seeing the contrived norms of our day through the worlds I have created.”
