*"...Powerful incitements to utopian desire."
The unruly artwork of Jesse Bercowetz is born out of a dark rural sensibility and is completely entrenched in the contemporary American psyche. His work is often fashioned through trial and error into material metaphor and holds no allegiance to any one process or genre. Bercowetz is committed to a non-market driven collaborative process and fostering interdependence through radical art making.
