Jess Taylor

Contemporary Art and Illustration BA(Hons)

Inspired by the growing love affair between millennials and houseplants, I take inspiration from my own plants, creating humorous compositions using abstract plant forms. Through the use of economy of line, I create my own representation of the houseplant - removing all the typical features we associate with plants (veins, stems, the colour green) to form vibrant, abstract forms that push the boundaries of being identifiable as plants. Influenced greatly by Sonia Delaunay’s textile designs and the vibrant colours used by Andy Warhol, I enjoy using silk screen printing techniques to create colourful contemporary prints that are versatile - Contemporary art that can be displayed in a domestic environment but also have the potential to be transformed into contemporary artworks suitable for a gallery setting.
