Jessica Drenk subverts our notion of functional everyday materials.  Her multi-media work draws inspiration from the natural and cultural worlds, using patterns and systems of information found in both. She uses simple materials such as pencils and books to recontextualize them intto free-stadning or wall-mounted sculptures. Other more indutrial materials such as PVC Pipe are carved and assembled to reference something more ephemeral, like waves or ripples created by water.
