Jessica Zeglin

Jessica Zeglin is an artist and gardener based in the middle Rio Grande valley.

Her works in sound, drawing, textiles, and installation are place-based, beginning from acknowledgment of the violence that paves her way to exist on this land and a search for more just and reciprocal methods of inhabiting living spaces. Grounded in theories of emergence, these works explore the complex patterns which emerge from simple building blocks in many forms of life.

Her craft addresses threatened ecosystems and cultural-ecosystem interactions, emphasizing listening, attentiveness, nourishment, and tending practices that bridge biological and conceptual divides.
