Who is Jess Hutchinson?

Apr 25 // Colette Bennett

When I saw a flyer over at Plush You! for Jess Hutchinson's upcoming show, Villagers, I found myself somewhat fascinated with their demurely closed eyes and Gorey-esque carriage. I took it upon myself to investigate the San Francisco-based artist, and I liked what I found enough that I thought I'd share it with you fine people.

Jess is inspired by Japanese toys (I was reminded of Yoshitomo Nara when looking at her evocative creations.) You can a get a really good gander at more of her work on her Flickr, or browse her items for sale at her Etsy site. Prices range from $16 for prints to $75 for handmade toys. There's something thoughtful and unique about these, and like Catrabbit's work they seem to have a life of their very own.

If you live in the Seattle area, you can check out Villagers on May 9th at Schmancy Toys (a shop you hould check out anyway if you haven't already, the owners make their own goodies as well as selling vinyl and more) from 6-9 pm. These little guys may look too sleepy to notice you, but I'll bet Jess will tell them later that you came to see them.
