Bushel is pleased to present a solo show of recent works on paper by New York-based artist Jessie Henson.

Jessie Henson‘s sculptures and drawings explores the tension between the concrete reality of ordinary life and the search for escape through fantasy and whimsy, making visible an interior world of play and personal narrative while negotiating aspects of fragility and mystery in the world. Henson has exhibited internationally, including in New York, Los Angeles and Mexico City. In 2013, Henson was the Windgate Fellow at Urban Glass in Brooklyn. She was an artist-in- residence at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art in Omaha, Nebraska in 2010 and 2013, a Create Change Fellow at the Laundromat Project in New York, and has participated in the AIM program at the Bronx Museum of Art. She has also been a resident at the Vermont Studio Center, supported with a full fellowship by the Joan Mitchell Foundation. Henson received her MFA from Rutgers University, the School of Mason Gross, and her BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and Design.
