Jess Elofson

As an artist I often play the game of who can do the most with absolutely nothing.

Art is an odd grey area of human existence, some times praised, some times punished, and more often than not simply overlooked. Historically art has flourished and made its greatest marks during times of peace, when money was plentiful, and everyday people had time to reflect upon the wonders of man. So as I look around I realize I probably couldn’t have picked a worse time to take up the title of artist, yet I find this added challenge to be a bonus. I do not make art because it is easy, I find great satisfaction in overcoming the obstacles that often accompany life in this line of work.

Jess Elofson graduated from USD with a BFA in 3-D art in 2005 under the guidance of Ceramics professor Mike Hill.
