Jesse Gray is a multi-disciplinary artist living on Snuneymuxw territory (Nanaimo, BC).
Her practice looks at patterns of waste accumulation and explores the underlying histories of human-made objects. Her work deals with the ways that culture and the sciences intersect, and is based in salvaging, hand-craft, and labour-intensive practices.
Jesse holds an MFA in Studio Art from the University of British Columbia (2009), a BFA in Visual Art from Simon Fraser University (2002), and studied jewellery art & design at Vancouver Community College (2012). She teaches experimental drawing, sculpture, and contemporary art at various schools, art galleries and institutions. She also makes jewellery under the name Gray Metal.
