Jessica Watson Thorp  

Modern Artists Gallery 2018

 

Primarily a painter, Jessica Watson-Thorp plays with layering effects, spreading thick acrylic and then carving and stamping it with the end of a brush or stencil before it dries. Once her new topography has hardened, more colour is introduced - rendering sections translucent or opaque.

Originally from Australia, Jessica has lived in the Middle East for the past thirteen years. It is a region she describes as deeply beautiful and compelling. In her work Jessica captures both personal experiences and what she calls the dramatic physical environment.

Inspired by Matisse and the vibrant colours of time spent in Africa, along with the rhythms of life, Jessica represents all that is positive in the world.

'I am an artist -I am a woman and I am inspired by life'
