Judge: Jesse Wiedel
Jesse Wiedel was raised in a rural community outside of the central valley town of Redding, California. After spending his young life gaining inspiration from the cultural wastelands, he eventually migrated to the city and received his degree in painting at the San Francisco Art Institute. He has spent the last twenty-five years making art in Humboldt County, California—fertile ground for his interest in human folly and frailties.
Jesse’s paintings can be read as satire, social criticism, or psychological horror. He works mainly in oil paint, in a style that is both illusionistic and painterly. Jesse has also performed in many garage/punk bands since 1983, a practice that has also informed his artworks.
