The source material for Jessica Rohrer’s work has been her homes and neighborhoods, from her birthplace in Wisconsin to New Jersey where she now lives and works. Often labor intensive, the work deals with ideas of representation, public vs private space, identity, memory, and a desire to control our surrounding environment. Rohrer did her undergraduate studies at Northwestern University, spent a post-graduate year at the Art Institute of Chicago, and received an MFA in painting from Yale University.
