ABOUT THE ARTIST

Joanna Jesse, artist of ART Galerie 7, Cologne

The art of the Polish-born artist and master student of the Düsseldorf Art Academy Joanna Jesse deals with summerly daily life scenes. The artist characteristically makes use of a painting style that refers to photorealism and thereby takes on the idea of photography as the most common way to preserve impressions and memories. That way, Jesse achieves a great deal of realism, and simultaneously conveys a dreamy and surreal mood. The depictions are often kept in black and white with fine shades, as well as in bright colours. She either way plays with the notion of clear and blurry motifs. The light-flooded paintings surprise with their spontaneous and authentic snapshot look. Jesse’s works appear like blurry memory fragments from the perspective of a child or a young adult. The paintings nostalgically visualise the curiosity and joy of everyday situations. Jesse depicts happy snapshots without an obvious narrative structure- instead people are shown in dynamic moments or moments of peace. This indefiniteness of place and time offers room for own associations, thoughts and emotions. With the strong expressiveness of her painting, Jesse successfully illustrates the reality according to our sensual perception. She recognizes the magic of small moments that are often disregarded in everyday life.
