Jessica Eaton (b. 1977, Regina, Saskatchewan) graduated from Emily Carr University in Vancouver, BC in 2006, and is based in Montreal, Québec.
Working with large format cameras, her photographic practice experiments with blending and splitting light using lenses and geometric forms, creating photographs whose subject is light itself.
Acclaimed for her innovative experiments in colour photography, Jessica Eaton applies unique analog techniques to manipulate properties of light. In her vibrant images she pushes the rhetoric of abstraction to provoke questions about perceptual experience. She states, “…[analog photography] doesn’t have to be intrinsically bound to the visible world. It is full of possibility.”
She is represented by Jessica Bradley, Toronto, Higher Pictures, New York and M + B Gallery, Los Angeles.
