Jessica Ward - Inverted Branch Series No 1

Jessica Ward - Inverted Branch Series No 1


2015, balsa wood, monofilament, thread, acrylic and enamel paint.  43x43cm. Framed in black.

A striking image that plays with the notion of opposites – black and white, negative and positive space – are flipped and inverted. The central image of a single branch is repeated and reflected.

The bold cut-out from a solid wooden background – where the grain and texture of the wood can be seen – contrasts with the delicate, vertical painted thread that fills and defines the negative void of the overlapping branches.

This piece reveals more or less of itself depending upon the distance of the viewer, offering an ever evolving and altering experience of the image.
