Artist Jess Levine works to connect people to nature and each other through living sculptures
that embody the dynamics of growth, decay and renewal of biodiverse systems. With an
emphasis on a sustainable, recycled materials approach, Levine casts sculptures that mix
textural forms from nature with machine-made ones, to suggest both the interconnectedness and inherent contradictions of these systems. Levine is the recipient of numerous grants, residencies and awards, including the West Virginia Governors Award for
Arts Leadership, Black Rock Arts Foundation Grant and Atlantic Center for the Arts Residency. Her work has been collected and exhibited widely, including at the Asheville Art Museum, Thoreau Center for Sustainability at The Presidio, San Francisco, West Virginia State Museum Collection and Museum of Northwest Art.
