Jessica Ward - Beaded Silhouettes

Jessica Ward - Beaded Silhouettes


2015, Found branches, monofilament, miyuki beads, acrylic and enamel paint.  53x53cm framed in black

Two paired branches create a striking silhouette, with each branch complementing the other and whilst playing within the surrounding negative space.

Their organic forms are contrasted against a subtle yet rigid grid of semi-translucent monofilament that brings structure, yet also simultaneously soft, ephemeral shadows.

Suspended and balancing within the grid are delicate, reflective Miyuki beads, that reinforce the order of the grid, yet echo the feeling of being among trees or looking through overlapping branches.
