Jessica Russo Scherr’s exploration of the self and the other creates a hybrid of the personal and the universal through her artworks. The handling of her chosen media is often applied in overlapping and mirrored layers forming atmospheric portraits and landscapes that intentionally evoke sensations of memory recollection and internal evolution. She uses tiny images and splashes of color from magazines to form her palette. Her subjects are frequently depicted in solitary, social and spiritual situations. She is an internationally exhibiting artist and recipient of the prestigious Fulbright Grant.
Some of her recent shows have been "Hope is Maybe" at Munich International Airport, "Normal Papers" at the Finge Arts Bath Festival, her solo exhibition, "Layers" at The Creative Collective, "Segnali d'Amore" at Tepidarium del Roster, and "Dignity Through Art" at the Museo dell'Opera Del Duomo, in Florence, Italy. She currently resides in Germany.
Jessica earned her BFA from Hartford Art School, University of Hartford, her Post BA teaching certification from Montclair State University and she attended the MFA program at William Paterson for 2 years and earned a 4.0 for her Masters of Arts in Art Education from Boston University.
