Jessica Martin

Merging states of dimensionality and flatness, Jessica Martin’s paintings convey both layering and compression of time, with a nation of movement. Drawn from recognizable imagery in a combination of figures and landscapes, they become disorienting and unrecognizable from their source. Built up through layers of paint and overlaid with mark-making, the paintings become highly worked, creating new narratives of their source of imagery. Shifting between swiftness and bursting softness and aggression, frenetic mark making becomes a gesture of visual tempo that phases and echoes rhythmic compositions.
