Jessica Bodner

Jessica’s sculptural work is inspired by a myriad of subjects in nature. Her pieces are constructed using techniques based in sacred geometry. Her mastery of drawing and the fluidity of line is translated into metal with sculptural pieces that range from free form suspended galaxy gestures constructed of tubular steel with orbs of light that spin abstract lines onto the surrounding surfaces, which create a double dimension of drawing, to woven steel forms reminiscent of archeological subject matter. Other works include fractal formation “Light paintings” and installations using fiber optics.

Jessica’s strong respect and appreciation for the “Original Peoples” and their interwoven relationship with the land and animals has been an ongoing inspiration, leading to many commissions including several public art projects and work on many Native American venues and hotels. Jessica’s art harnesses a connection of our ancestral past with a modern sensibility using science and nature as a palette. Her work has been commissioned widely throughout the United States and abroad for public and private projects, countless restaurants, hospitality and Heath care projects.

Currently, she is focused on commission work for permanent collections and public spaces as well as outdoor large-scale sculpture, fiber optic light paintings and midsize sculptural pieces for indoor displays. Her newest series of sculpture draws inspiration from animals and ancient fossils found in the region, combined with geometric and astrological formations, creating work that has timeless yet modern form. Jessica’s workshop is located in Paradise Valley at the Paradise Flying airport in an airplane hanger.
