Jesse Draxler’s pieces are enigmatic explorations of existentialism. The artist tackles ideas of beauty, nihilism, sexuality, and absurdity through deconstructed images that incorporate found photos, abstract painting, and design, and the resulting pieces are dark, monochromatic, and visually challenging.
Draxler has shown her work in a number of exhibitions including Joseph Gross Gallery, NY, The Unit, London, Doomed Gallery, London, Galerie Joseph, Paris, France, Fotofoam Gallery, New York, NY, Gallery Feinkunst Krüger, Hamburg, Germany, Gestalten Gallery, Berlin, Germany and Gatos de Marte Gallery, Murcia, Spain. Commission clients include The New York Times and McQ Alexander McQueen. Several publications have featured Draxler’s work including Juxtapoz, Interview Magazine, Vice Creator's Project, Dazed - Beauty and the Grotesque and the 2014 Rogue Art Issue (cover & cover story.)
