Learn About GAP Award
Jessica Hoffman received an MFA in Book Arts/Printmaking from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 2010. She received a BFA in Photography from the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC in 2003. Her work investigates memory, obsessive behaviors, and interactions between people and communication technology. Her installations include work in several mediums, among them video, photography, books, and printmaking. Jessica has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally in galleries and book fairs.
Jessica received 2014 GAP funding for a Kutrimmer guillotine-style paper and board cutter. As a book artist and printmaker, working with text, communication, and memory she requires access to proper cutting equipment that allows her to accurately and efficiently cut large sheets of board, paper, cloth, and wood. The Kutrimmer will allow her to complete two current projects, as well as free her to work with larger sizes and material to create future bodies of work.
