Jessica Holmes’ works present abjectly beautiful surfaces disrupted through wilful damage and decay… the dominantly decorative surface of Jessica Holmes’ ‘Hours or Even Days of Warning’ communicates a kind of domestic unease. Out of the corner of your eye something taints the image, a danger lurks beneath the apparently benign surface.
The high-ceilinged white space is perfect for Holmes’ paintings and prints, where the contours and crumples of paper and newsprint form the background to immaculate portraits of decay… it’s worth travelling to enjoy a show from one of our most exciting talents.
Jessica Holmes… takes you on a journey of exploration. An eye-opening experience.
