Art From the Boros III winner and Talents artist Jessica Maffia offers a peak into her drawing process

Maffia’s works are inspired by the rich mark making of decay, residues and cracks on aging surfaces that she finds around her and in her travels. She considers these unintentional found art. She sees beauty in their forms, color or lack of. Her works are tightly rendered wall markings in pencil on paper. Although the works appear obsessive, they yield haunting, exquisite worlds that compel her and the viewer. She savors the process of looking at things closely to uncover the splendors in the ordinary and the insignificant.
