Artist Statement
In my photography, I aim to capture that ‘decisive moment’, whether it is on the teeming streets of India, or in the play of light over a landscape. The camera is my tool to capture through light, line, color and mood, the beauty of our human condition and the fascinating world around us.

Jessica Libor is an artist from Philadelphia, PA who creates work that deal with beauty, desire, nature, and feminine experience.  Myths and legends often influence her work, and she works mostly in oils and precious metals. Jessica's aesthetic is influenced by the Rococo and Pre-Raphaelite periods of art history, as well as theater, set design, high fashion culture. The feminine figure is central in carrying the piece or telling a story, with her surroundings often mirroring her state of mind. Jessica received her Master of Fine Arts from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2014. 
 
Artist Statement
I create work that bridges the glamorous beauty of nature with the transcendence of the female presence.  By utilizing myths and legends, I can tell the story of where we came from and who we see ourselves as. My aesthetic is influenced by the Rococo and Pre-Raphaelite periods of art history, as well as theater, set design, high fashion culture. The feminine figure is central in carrying the piece or telling a story, and her surroundings often mirror her state of mind. In all my work, I strive to create an enveloping world that is vivid, compelling and emotionally complex. I would like it if my viewers could step inside this world and fall in love, if only for a moment, with the moment portrayed. It is this portrayal of strength and potential, this perfect moment of inspiration within an imperfect world, that I aim to capture in my work.
