Jesse Moretti uses digital technologies to design the spaces of painting and photography. Existing between abstraction, graphic art, Adobe CS and the screen the work aims for a place where the supposedly discrete states–flatness and dimensionality–analogue and digital–are merged. By creating a feedback loop between digital and material space in the studio, she collapses and unifies the pictorial plane.
Born in Miami Beach, Florida, Moretti received her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2013. She is currently in residence at Pioneer Works and has completed residencies at MANA Contemporary, KALA and Atreles. Recent exhibitions include a solo show at Patrick Parrish Gallery, NY and inclusion in La Chose Encadrée, at the Glasgow International 2014. Jesse is currently teaching design at Queens College–CUNY. She has lectured at École nationale des beaux- arts de Lyon, École Européenne Supérieure d’Art de Bretagne, Cranbrook Academy of Art, and MCAD.
