Comfortingly omniscient:  Jess Rotter at Ace Hotel New York.

Brooklyn-based artist Jess Rotter painted this Marfa, TX landscape on the walls of room 1122 (1/2/12!) at Ace Hotel New York. The world she’s painted is at once existentially jarring and comfortingly omniscient — as though it’s seen you before. Urban Outfitters made this video of Jess at Ace, and gives us a glimpse into the art she surrounds herself with when she’s not spending a marathon stretch of time with an overhead projector at our hotel.

You can also read an interview with Jess about the piece at Dossier Journal, where these photos are from.
