ARTIST JESSICA LOGSDON TROLLS THE KANSAS CITY ART SCENE!!!
Jessica Logsdon is prolific, provocative and one of the few artists in Kansas City whose work is politically charged.
In fact, Ms. Logsdon taken a turn toward the outright politically incorrect.
In the tradition of most groundbreaking artists, some of her latest images have been downright offensive and she recently suffered a setback in the eyes of her fans by tagging local African-American politicos with minstrel images in a display that was racially charged but didn't really resonate anything but hurt feelings in an effort to achieve an aim that the artist didn't care to clarify. . . Still, the episode was noteworthy if only because so many other local artists are trapped in their own heads and rarely acknowledge the world around them at all. Fact is, Ms. Logson has some real moments of brilliance in her work when her message is focused, simple and relentless.
Accordingly . . .
