Jessa Carta is an omnidisciplinary artist and creative project consultant. She is compelled towards rhizomatic frameworks, pattern literacy and the healing power of ritual containers. Jessa is possessed by the ineffable wiggliness of nature and it’s harmonious systems/structures in equal measure.*Jessa’s patrilineal last name is Carter which means messanger, mail carrier or a person who carts goods. In a move towards fewer belongings and more belonging, less doing and more being, Carta replaces “the messanger” for the message itself from the Latin “paper” “map”.
Jessa’s work tracks the leading lines of value, identity and performativity and plays host and witness to the cycles of life<>death <>life present in our ecosystems and egosystems.
Jessa is a deep empath who opens herself to the collective unconscious and vows to give it expression. Her fierce belief in understanding and respecting authentic truths has led her down a path of seizmic connections. What she creates has been described as “a rare mythic perspective”, “assertions of feminine power” and Jessa herself has been called an “an underworld intermediary”.
Jessa is currently the prime mover of arts-based research project LAND LAND. Jessa is a founding member of the Seattle-based experimental collective LOVECITYLOVE - a diverse, accessible, and inclusive secular art church. Her education and research has included classes and certifications as a natural builder, permaculturalist, breath worker and solidarity economist. These interests intersect to net a practice commited to being and becoming an active contributor to the regenaissance.
