Jessica Warboys Paperback
Edited by Sara Matson, Laura Smith
Known for her ephemeral, ethereal works informed by personal or collective memories, Jessica Warboys (b. 1977) works across a wide range of media, including performance, film, sculpture, and painting.
Beautifully illustrated, this book investigates the artist s use of symbolism, her vocabulary of forms, and her approach to landscape.
Warboys often combines her materials with a natural element, such as water or the sun, applying pigment directly onto large-scale canvases before submerging them into the sea and allowing the waves to distribute the color.
The action is deliberately related to performance, and the resulting canvases create a physical document of her collaboration with the sea.
Published to accompany a touring exhibition, this book brings the work of a rising star to a new audience."
