Jess Scott is an artist living in L.A. working in paintings, drawings, and sometimes ceramics, sculptures, and repurposed objects for installation. Scott was featured in the Tom of Finland survey in Mike Kelley’s Mobile Homestead / MOCAD in Detroit (2018) and was subsequently inspired by the idea of the TOM House in a Mike Home, extending the concept to a Jess Room in TOM House. Jess Room will therefore aim to create a both contained and influenced world of Scott’s work situated in context of Tom of Finland as a contemporarily-engaged legacy. Scott’s sculptures of Loiter Daddies, various ceramic objects, paintings, reimagined novels, paper lanterns, and other objects of home and art studio will furnish TOM House’s ground floor for a two day exhibition.
Opening Reception: Saturday 6-9p
Sunday: Noon to 5p
