Jenny Jessop

Bird Song


Jessop grew up in a small town in the west of Ireland before moving to live and work Melbourne 7 years ago. In her artworks, Jessop finds the ‘quiet beauty’ in a moment of time, she sees possible landscapes in markings of things left behind, such as paint left on pallette, cracks left on a pavement or disused timber on the side of the road. She aims not to go in search of beautiful places, but allows them to find her in a fleeting moment.
