”When painting from landscape my intent is to represent the light, immersion and vibrancy of the subject and painterly medium. The viewer’s exploration of atmosphere and the visual and visceral surface of the paintings is my main focus. Currently I am using abstraction to re-invent an experience of natural space and landscape.” Jessica’s new work is inspired by Neo-Romantic traditions of nature and the sublime. Currently she is working with a combination of drawing and painting gesture to experiment with how bodily mark-making can convey emotion and an authentic representation of space.
