Jessica Houston

I use color and light in my projects to consider ecology, nature, and the passage of time. I have been engaged with the Canadian Arctic for almost a decade working with questions about our relationship to place. With minimal means, I quietly advocate for a renewed sensitivity to our natural world and the network of relationships between people, animals and the environment. I have created site-specific works for the New Jersey MOCA, Asbury Park, New Jersey; the Castello di Corigliano, Puglia, Italy; Governors Island, NY, NY; and The Albany Airport, Albany, NY. My works are funded by The Canada Council for the Arts and are in the collections of La collection Prêt d’œuvres d’art, Musée National Des Beaux-Arts du Quebec; Bank of Montréal, Toronto; and the Consulate General of Monaco, Montréal.
