Jessy Nite is a Bad, Bad Girl at Primary Projects
|Beneath this cheery exterior lies a badass.|
According to Nite, the title "Bad As I Wanna Be" is about more than just partying and "being badass." She says, "I pretty much do whatever I want in life, and I think that's always the goal, but the show is also about getting to finally do the projects I always wanted to do. This is my own personal side of it. It's about the whole attitude of just doing it."
Nite, who has adopted Miami as her home, is as bright and colorful as her art, yet she is the epitome of cool. For the solo show, she pushed her boundaries, encouraged by Typoe and Chris Oh of Primary Projects, to go beyond painting and experiment with her art to include installations and sculptures.
Blinged-out cookies and Cartier-pie are just one aspect of a show inspired by "how over the top rich people are," Jessy says. "I have always been really interested in that super over-the-top-wealth, cause they are so fucked up. They have so much money. Most of them are, like, pill-popping housewives -- they just marry some rich dude. That's, like, my dream: marry some super-rich dude and just kind of like waste away. I could never do that though. I am not that kind of person."
