Working in a range of media, Jeanne Marie Wasilik plays with representation and language, and how language might be transcribed, read, and received. Her work quotes images of art history, popular culture, text, and code, particularly Braille, as a metaphor of how all images and all language both grant and deny access, and how representation enacts the gap between moments of perception and moments of comprehension. Along with panel pieces and drawings in several media, the work includes paintings of fabric setups, blind drawings of St. Lucy made only by the light of the projector, and graphite on vellum images of phrases in Braille that are slightly smudged as the result of her "reading" the phrase with her fingers. Wasilik’s work has been seen regularly in group and solo shows, including exhibitions at Artists Space, the Drawing Center, the Painting Center, the University of Massachusetts, Exit Art, Anthology Film Archives’ Courthouse Gallery, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and Queens College CUNY. She has also authored several catalogue essays and reviewed for New York Arts Magazine and Zingmagazine.
