Jessica Porter recently (Nov/Dec 2007) held an exhibition titled 'Forgot to Remember' with Fil Molitor and Kate Beckingham at the Somedays Gallery in Surry Hills, Sydney.
"Jessica’s work is driven by a desire to understand human behavior. She is stirred by the force within us to assume that what we know is right and best. Jessica is preoccupied with finding the truth and meaning underlying things and she weaves this into her work. Through use of symbolism, abstraction, and illusions, her work often hides a secret tale.
She thrives on creating images that ask the viewer to question what they see and prompts them to consider a new perspective. Surrounded by stereotypes and hasty judgments, Jessica is moved to show viewers that what they see may not be what others see. Her work forces the viewer to make up their own mind about they see. Truth is in the eye of the beholder."
Jessica's artwork is striking and bold. Have a look at her work from the 'Forget to Remember' exhibition, illustrations she did for the Total Cardboard journal, and some of her other artwork.
