Jaclyn’s work is driven by political controversies that surround land, communities, and acts of resistance. By framing evidence of those acts, her work recontextualizes how they manifest in public spaces and neighborhood landscapes. Her work engages with resistance against powerful cultural systems such as gentrification, environmental threats, and state violence that exists in an urban space like Chicago. Rearranging found objects, news images, and architectural elements, her current work explores controversies in Chicago neighborhoods while considering the impact of an individual. She employs interdisciplinary practices but is defined by printmaking’s populist ethic in the distribution of art with posters and zines.
