Tyck om dej
by Jessica Brown
43×43 cm
Mixed media on canvas
Off white wooden frame
This painting was inspired by a trip to Stockholm – the beautiful archipelago spread across 14 islands and a place where you can glimpse the sea out of the corner of your eye practically everywhere you go. The title ‘Tyck om dej’ means to love, or to like yourself in Swedish and was printed on a T shirt worn by Agnetha Faltskog of Sweden’s biggest musical export Abba in 1972. Something of this spirit, along with the city’s watery brilliance and bright blues skies found their way into this painting.
Colours: blue, white, red, navy, skyblue.

Size: H:43 cm x W:43 cm

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”." To discuss any of Jessica Brown's artworks please contact or call 01869 338 155.
