Jess is a mixed media artist who primarily works in 2D but occasionally breaks out into something a little more 3D, be it concrete or broken crockery. Looking at the works on display, architectural forms, structure, line and colour are all integral to these works. Their simplicity is intentional. The pairing down of the works as they progress is where the good stuff starts to happen. Adding in and taking away until the spacial play brings a certain harmony and balance to the eye.
Jess studied Fine Art and has travelled and lived abroad, has worked in the education and design sector. Currently based in Stroud Jess works for an international artist who’s practice is utterly different – this allows plenty of headspace for undertaking her own projects.
