JESSICA GERON

WHEN : 5th – 23rd March
WHERE : Edwina Corlette Gallery

Jessica Geron is a Brisbane-based artist with a Master of Fine Arts from the College of Fine Arts in Sydney.Her 2006 thesis discussed the impact of digital media on the studio practices of painters. She has been a finalist in numerous national art prizes, including the Portia Geach Memorial Award in 2010 and 2011.

Geron’s art may be likened to a painter’s patchwork. With tongue firmly in cheek, she brings together cultural elements of assorted trash and treasure, to create moments of hilarity, fantasy and pure (and impure) decorative distraction.

She quotes liberally from a rich history of pattern-work, films, personal photographs, airport novellas, life in the suburbs and a bottomless supply of weird and wonderful web imagery.
