Blue floral painting by Jessica Ruth Freedman


Bio

Jessica Ruth Freedman is a Victoria, Canada based contemporary painter working in acrylic, ink, and mixed media.

A former modern and ballet dancer, Jessica’s artwork explores the relationship between the natural world and physical and mental environments through movement, architecture, and music. Inspiration for her ‘Modern Botanicals’ painting style is drawn from archived images during her travels which she couples in contrast with forms and flourishes informed by modernist architecture and jazz.

Jessica has a Bachelor of Arts - Major in Dance and Minor in Fine Arts - from Simon Fraser University and has exhibited both locally and internationally. Her work is represented by galleries and stockists and is in private and public collections worldwide.

Statement

My journey through life can only be described as artistic DIY. I have never followed the rules. I failed my first art assignment in Kindergarten. I was always the child who wanted to be left alone to explore and discover. I've taken risks but also played within my comfort zone. I am optimistic and curious about mistakes.

I paint because it connects me to who am I and to what I value. I am change, I am chaos, I am peacefulness. I am warm. I am thoughtful. I am adventurous.

I am an artist who believes in creating work that is warm, peaceful, and adventurous.

I paint lush botanicals alongside spontaneous abstract architectural elements, generating an intuitive space where elements can play with each other as they layer and interact. I try to elicit the sensory delights of travel, culture, and discovery within my work. I hope my paintings carry the transformative power of self-reflection, contemplation, and joy.
