Statement

www.jungjustice.com    to visit my (other) art website!

 

JJ has lots of questions and probably wonders about too many things. But it’s this disposition that keeps things so entertaining! She is NEVER

 

BORED. 

 

JJ is a radical social worker, feminist, and self-taught artist who lives, works and make electronic noise in Vallejo,CA. JJ began drawing and coloring to pass the time during a medical leave from her job doing social work in 2009 and fell in love with making art!

 

 

 

JJ’s found that making art/playing with art supplies somehow helps her manage the misery and outrageously disappointing experiences she has had with western medicine, chronic pain, and a difficult to manage autoimmune disease. With her "hmmm, i wonder what this will do, or look like?" approach to creating art, she is constantly surprised with the fun products she is able to come up with, but rarely duplicate.  It seems everyday JJ discovers a new medium to try or new way to use a medium. With these new discoveries her art is always evolving but always uses vibrant, glowing colors and include elements of pattern and texture.

 

 

Jumping from drawing to sewing, to painting, to airbrushing, to printing, to picture taking, or image editing, JJ uses almost every free minute in her days to create, learn, and play with her ever growing art supply collection.

 

 

Common themes in her art are utility, social justice, consciousness raising, or examination of the harms she and the youth she worked with have endured at the hands of institutions and individuals, the pain/consequence we suffer as a result, the crazy ways we fight for survival, and the utter confusion and amazement in JJ's own survival thus far.

 

When she isn't drawing or painting, JJ plays with and uses the amazing settings on each of her gadgets to the fullest. Whether it be using the smart phone, Nintendo 3ds, MacBook, sewing machine or her Cannon PowerShot SD1100is. JJ enjoys finding new ways to design art that has utility because she feels that art becomes more accessible if it makes sense right away and can be useful in everyday life. She also prioritizes using remnant fabric, leather and rescued and gifted materials in all her work.  

 

Currently JJ is working with UV reactive paints and materials to make 3D (Chromadepth) art. All of her UV art can be enjoyed under regular lighting without  3D glasses, but add those to the mix and things really come alive! And perhaps you will see something new, something that wasn’t visible until the proper light was shed.
