Statement

Jesse Harrod has an MFA from the department of Fiber and Material Studies from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University.

Harrod has been writing and making work that employs traditional and contemporary craft practices. Her practice focuses on craft as a shadow category of art production to traditional or mainstream fine art. She is interested in how a "hobbyist" or "bad taste" aesthetic may relate to queer identity, as well as to second and third wave feminist thought. Harrod is interested in working with the layers of meaning that exist within the history of industrially produced and globally circulated cloth and fabric. Those layers include gender, home, colonialism, industry, insincerity, surface and the need to be something you are not. As such, much of her work relates to ideas of pollination, puberty, sexuality, and growth, in both literal and metaphorical senses.

Currently she is an Assistant Professor of Fibers at School of Art and Design and Art History at James Madison University in Virginia.
