Jessica Fontenot draws and paints our contemporary world, often from the driver’s seat. Her work is a mix of infrastructure observations and a record of place as anchors for our memories.

East Austin Work
A collection of artwork about the past and present of the East Austin neighborhood in Austin, TX.
Artwork made during my time in Seattle as part of the Rockland Residency. I focused on the city’s gentrification and how redlining in the mid-1900s affected who lived where.
