Jessica Tam's work typically begins with an image from sensational popular culture such as professional wrestling, and evolves over a series of paintings and prints all stemming from that same image.  Tam has exhibited work in New York at Schroeder Romero, The Painting Center, and Slag Gallery as well as in Chicago at LG Space. She has been a Clowes Fund Fellow at the Vermont Studio Center, an NEA Fellowship Recipient at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and the Al Held Affiliated Fellow at the American Academy in Rome. Most recently, her series of site-specific paintings, Triptych, has shown at Midway Gallery in Boston, The Seerveld Gallery at Trinity Christian College, and The Box at Knox College.  She received a BA from Dartmouth College, a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and an MFA from the Yale School of Art.
