Jess Rees presents a body of gouache paintings focusing on the structure and geometry of architectural spaces. Her work depicts houses, city blocks, and spaces that simultaneously embody both hollow and solid natures, exploring the idea of architecture’s role as both object and container. Her experience as a human living above ground in urban apartments plays into her exploration of things that are undeniably rooted to the ground.
