Jessica Taylor Caponigro alters mundane goods, combining and manipulating them to highlight their elegance and beauty while at the same time emphasizing their imminent inadequacy as a quality to be revered. It is the inherent failure to reproduce by hand that informs her work, breaking the monotony of the identical with the significance of imperfections. Before receiving her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Caponigro attended Bryn Mawr College where she earned her BA in the History of Art. She has taught at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Olive Harvey College, and Spudnik Press. She is currently an adjunct instructor at Harold Washington College. In addition to solo and group shows in Chicago, her work has been exhibited in Long Beach, Philadelphia, and Rome.
