No-one knows what your life or life itself should be because it is in the process of being created. Life moves according to a growing consciousness of life and is completely unpredictable.
- Agnes Martin
Born in the bush.
Raised by the ocean.
Living in Melbourne.
Jessie is a Melbourne based gestural abstract artist, she grew up between the beaches of Sydney’s east coast and the bushy mountains of Melbourne’s Dandenong ranges, her connection to nature is a formative element in her work, reflecting a personal dialogue between environment, experience, interaction and moments of time.
Jessie engages her senses and uses her body as a conduit for the art making materials, exploring the relationship between self, experience and environment. Working in a mix of acrylic, inks and pastels, Jessie uses experimental methods to create marks that speak to her instinctual bodily responses, in reaction or recollection of her daily experiencing.
