Jessica Korderas - Isolated Thoughts 3 (description)

The works of the series Isolated Thoughts picture the tenants of apartment buildings going about their physically close but unconnected lives. Jessica Korderas has created narrative scenes of what might be playing out under the same roof at the same time: everyday routines and surreal events, dramas and anecdotes, solitude and idleness, alienation and the supernatural. To stage the micro-stories of each work, the artist first constructed a set: a building facade made of illustration board. She then painted the figures, furniture and countless expressive minutiae on sheets of Mylar film and layered the images onto the low-relief surface. The build-up of resin-embedded material produces a sculptural painting alive with details.
