Jessica Kirkpatrick

Using the idea of primary but binary inter-relationships of symbiotic necessity, Kirkpatrick paints figurative landscape scenarios, which mutate into aspects of abstraction and back again. The dislocated, both metaphorically and physically, characters and locations suggest suburban angst and uncertainty in an allegory of identity. The narrative of illusory realities is coaxed into alignment through a collage process leading to a ‘realist’ style of painting that retains a mystique akin to a David Lynch movie, with its accompanying tensions, anxieties, and plain weirdness.
