A Tiny Core of Stillness is an original abstract painting by Jessica Brown. This abstract neutral taupe, white, damson and pink painting with touches of green. This gorgeous piece is about being open to wonder, about stopping and being still, smelling the flowers and listening to the birds singing. In this piece you will see a reference to the lotus flower, which blooms out of the mud with no sign of dirt on its petals.
Jessica Brown is an artist working in abstract art. Jessica Brown comments “I’m an abstract painter working from my studio in Warwickshire. My work comes from looking at the patterns, shapes, forms, and colours of my surroundings. I’m drawn to intersections – such as organic shapes next to geometric ones. My paintings may remind the viewer of these sources of inspiration, but I try not to make “pictures” of any of it. I use an abstract language of mark making that is both personal and universal. A visual language that I hope has the power, like music or literature, to uplift, and communicate. The shapes I use vary depending on my current inspiration, but I often repeat certain lines, shapes and symbols. You may also discover fragments of maps, or words buried beneath the surface. Although these elements appear in an abstract context, they retain echoes of meaning which the viewer can relate to as they respond to the painting. I use a range of materials: paint, pencil, pastels and collage to build up my paintings in an organic way. I overlay layers of paint, mark and collage to build up the image. This creates glimpses, hidden spaces, things half-seen, suggested. The more you look, the more you’ll see. I continue working until I feel harmony and balance has been achieved and the image has been “found”.
