jessjohn_artist sea painting series

Everything creates the art, the sea, sound, smell, land and weather they all play an emphasis in creating the work and it is not about a singular component, not a singular artist, not a singular response, not a singular narrative but a singular concept of simple embracing the landscape.

My work is based on the landscape and growing up in Pembrokeshire has played a huge role in how I respond and think about the landscape. The landscape is growing, it is alive and with that we have a minimal/ temporary effect on it in which to create our own marking. More recently my work has been based on working with the landscape literally within the 'everyday' and essentialy allowing the landscape to create the works. I been looking at the positioning between human existence and the landscape for a while, we all have fixed perceptions in everything throughout self-signifcant periods in our life and therefore words/ transcriptions of the works never translate the [true] visual. I am interested in the real, do we ever encounter the real? Or are we mindles and blind in the pure and bliss? Have our human perceptions diluted or simply removed the real? My work is based on a direct experience of a visual and a response towards that which indirectly touches the real. I have been trying to limit the amount of [aware] mediums to make an allowance for the unexpected ones of nature ( weather/ air temp/ time). The sea paintings 2009 capture a moment in time in the landscape, its present and therefore its past.

I am a painter .....I paint what I feel, see, touch and imagine ...I breath painting and not a theory on how to paint.
