JESSICKA ADDAMS

Florida-born, Los Angeles-based artist Jessicka Addams (also know as Jessicka) has combined her fascination with Goth culture, all things John Waters, religious iconography and the Easter Bunny in her first solo collection titled, "What's Behind The Bunny" Armed with a glue gun and a dream,the self-taught artist is also the founding member and singer of such seminal indie rock bands as Jack Off Jill and scarling. As a child, Jessicka was obsessed with masks because they represented a place to hide and an opportunity for those who gazed upon them to seek out what lied beneath. As an adult, she uses masks as a symbol to show the myriad of ways we hide behind our own faces in order to protect our true selves daily.

The collection features bunny masks with a vast array of dark, nostalgic and strangely melancholy mixed media sculptural work, as well as collaborations with artists Mark Ryden, Elizabeth McGrath, Marion Peck, Morgan Slade, Louis-Marie de Castelbajac, Joshua Petker, Albert Sanchez, Lindsey Way, Tarina Tarantino, Jared Gold, Austin Young, Janine Jarman, and more.

 

LINDSEY WAY

Lindsey Way was born in Dunoon, Scotland. She attended The Pratt Institute, where she studied fine art and illustration.

She then worked as a window display artist throughout New York City as assisted the prolific painter Ron English. Her work has been in CBGB's 32nd Anniversary Art Show, "Hung", and the traveling group show, "Draw". After years as a touring musician with the band Mindless Self Indulgence, she has been inspired by world art culture, and other influences include Mary Blair, Henry Darger and Georges Melies.

Lindsey's current body of work is a collection of thirteen dioramas entitled "Hush". She resides in Los Angeles.
