Jessica Parker is a contemporary landscape painter known for their exploration of the powerful stillness found at the meeting point of sky and land. Inspired by their upbringing in Cambridge and the breath taking East Anglian Fens, their artistic journey has been shaped by the vast open skies and expansive landscapes of their childhood.
Drawing from their innate understanding of these liminal spaces in the landscape, Jessica now resides in the tranquil surroundings of the Chiltern Hills, where they immerse themselves in capturing the consoling essence of stillness. Their artistic practice is driven by the emotional context of landscapes that constantly beckon them, including the dramatic fells of the North Yorkshire Dales and the untamed wilderness of the Scottish Western Isles.
Working predominantly with acrylic and mixed media layers, Jessica finds excitement in the immediacy of paint’s movement, allowing them to authentically capture their emotional relationship with each landscape. Their collections encompass intuitive abstract studies, textural abstracted landscapes, and semi-abstract skyscapes, offering a diverse range of artistic expression.
Believing in the transformative power of art, Jessica sees it as a means to still, calm, console, and connect individuals to the spaces they encounter. Through their evocative artworks, viewers are invited to experience the profound sense of being a small part of an infinite universe.
