‘Monet meets Gerhard Richter’ – Kenny Schachter on Jessica Zoob
Jessica Zoob, one of the UK’s most exciting artists, has created 16 paintings for her new collection Adventure. This is Jessica’s most landscape-based collection yet; the paintings themselves offer an adventure to the viewer, an entrance to the hidden depths of their imagination. The process of creating the works was in itself an adventure for Jessica, a quest for beauty. With the painting of each work, Jessica set herself the task of pushing beyond what she felt could have been the completion of the work, continuing on to something unknowable beyond. Thus Jessica sacrificed the safe places to allow the magic to happen.
Educated at the Central School of Art in London and then attending Nottingham University where she received a first class honours degree in Theatre Design, Jessica went on to a career as a theatre designer. Her first job was designing Cosi fan Tutti for a production in Bermuda. Picked out as a graduate to watch by Tom Sutcliff, Jessica went on to design shows for The Gate, with Ian MacNeal, The National Theatre, York Theatre Royal, and theatres in Bristol, Exeter, Greenwich, Hampstead and many more.
