Jess Holdengarde was born in 1991 in Cape Town and recently completed her BAFA at The Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2016. Jess works predominately in collage which informs her focus on the ineffable, fragmented psyche. Jess’s work also extends into print, installation, and video. Cutting, ripping and sewing in order to curate a fantastical world of juxtaposed shapes, forms and scenes.
