Statement

 

Jess F-P sculpture often uses unfired clay to embody a private experience of looking and the atmosphere of observing. Newspapers and mobile phones often provide the subject matter and enable shifting between the intimate, personal and immediate, and a wider, accessible worldly view. The main theme is being in the middle of things (in medias res), being here and the mid point that can be interpreted psychoanalytically as well as literally to evaluate and process the moment of daily life that we find ourselves embedded in.

Jess Flood-Paddock (b. 1977, London, lives and works in London) was educated at The Slade School of Art and The Royal College of Art. Her recent exhibitions include ‘Sacrifice’ at Swallow Street, London (2010, curated by Sarah McCrory) ‘Phyllida Barlow & Jess Flood-Paddock’ at the Russian Club, London (2009) and Bloomberg New Contemporaries (2006). In August 2010 she will have a two-person exhibition with Spartacus Chetwynd at MCA, Malta. She has recently been selected for the Frieze Foundation Film Commissions 2010, and has been shortlisted for the Converse / Dazed and Confused Emerging Artist Award.
