Limited edition hand painted dress by Jedda Daisy Culley for Tartan.
"My practice creates colourful, figurative paintings that often investigate the female experience and themes surrounding sex, motherhood, and objectification. Rendered in shade-shifting palettes of pink, purple, blue, and more, depicting fragmented representations of the female form. My loose, energetic strokes imbue my paintings with a sense of vivacity. It's important to me that my works appear to have been painted quickly to capture my subjects' swelling emotions and unpredictable movements.
I conjure up a world of character’s from feelings and observations. My lived experience manifests itself into a world of fairies laced with anxiety, monstrous mothers exploding outside their physical form, dark twisted multifaced butterflies lining up their chakras; demons have swirling eyes and cowboy hats; this symbolism is my language. I know the story in such deep detail that I can lose myself in the process. Working in large scale, my gestural marks force my whole body into a wild and abundant process. When I work small it’s close, right up in my face, personal. I often repeat poses and symbols within my painting, I love how poetry can be rhythmic and repetitive and how painting is fluid and continuous. I like the idea of saying something over and over, I like trance and hypnotism and high-risk painting. It’s through my writing that my visual language is created and it’s this visual language of characters and symbols that best reflects how I feel the world is around me."
