As a contemporary artist I work in clay, bronze & unique printing techniques as these mediums share the properties of direct manipulation yet retain delicacy and provide a dialogue within the idea of suspension.

ABOUT ME

A great fascination of mine is the definition of a matrix, the secondary pictures show how we would form in a successful coherence of the primary.  Post-modern society has created a sense of all in one and one in all within us.  Within this and the essence of what remains in our identity and cultural melting pot we are afforded the opportunity to choose who we are and what is passed on.  The mind-set is a very delicate place intricately woven by a culmination of events unique to each individual.

I explore the journey of knowledge by depicting scopes of reality in the quiet thoughtful spaces of the mind. My work deals with human presence and experience influenced by ones geographical placement.  The ripple effects of human action and interaction is a great part of my work. I seek to express moments of contact, humans seen as emotional bags walking around with moving dialogue which desires to be shared.

BIOGRAPHY
Jessica Michelle Le Roux, (born 1989, Nylstroom, South Africa). I am intrigued by the visual dialogue and influence of art within society which naturally directed my studies. I obtained my BA in Fine & Applied Arts from Tshwane University of Technology in 2011, majoring in printed image. Exhibitions in which I have partaken include those at the Pretoria Art Museum, Trent, Unisa Gallery and the South African Print Fair. I have been selected in Absa L’Ateliers finalists as well as that of Sasol New Signatures. My artwork is included in numerous private art collections as well as Hogan Lovells and ABSA’S corporate collection. I am greatly looking forward to participating in the AVA Collaboration in Association with Nando's Creative Exchange and the South African Print fair among other exhibitions lined up for 2019.
TECHNIQUE

I work in clay, casting and unique printing techniques as these mediums share the properties of direct manipulation yet retain delicacy and provide a dialogue within the idea of suspension, shelter and displacement in relation to the iconic representations of culture.
