Jessica a recent graduate from the BFA program at Louisiana Tech currently lives and works in Bossier-Shreveport area. When asked about her photography she responded “The photographs I make are broken down into their raw, most basic form with the use of a nude model. The constructions are manipulated and the color palette is controlled to symbolize the control I have attempted to seize in my life. Themes of confinement, loneliness, ritual, growth, decay, and struggle are found in the work to represent how difficult it is to find a sense of belonging in a space. The themes are portrayed in a delicate, microcosmic way to reinforce the subtlety of my emotions and relate to the viewer.”

Gipson is a graduate from Louisiana Tech’s Master of Fine Arts program and currently teaches for Ouachita Talented Arts Program. When asked about his work Gipson responded “The main concept of my artwork is centered on our abilities to solve problems through reduction. In the work, I use geometric and organic forms. The geometric forms represent man-made objects. The organic forms represent natural objects. I use these forms to depict analogies between natural and manmade objects. Growing up, I spent my summers working for my Dad on his brick crew during the week, and practicing music with him on the weekends. In both cases I learned to reduce complex information down to simple patterns and rhythms.”
