About The Artwork

Geometric and primordial, this piece references tropical botanical forms. A hand-marbled design in greens and yellows floats on a coral pink painterly ground as well as reveals the wood sub straight beneath. Gold leaf gilding accents the motif and painting's edges. It is said that all life on earth is created from the matter of long-dead stars. The visual juxtaposition of hard-edge line and organic texture references the aesthetic parallel found across botany and astronomy. This is one in an ongoing body of work called 'Cosmic Botany'. Painting is ready to hang with gold gilded edges and custom-made wood frame. Signed on the back.

“It is said that all forms on earth are created from the matter of long-dead stars. These shapes and patterns that I find in my environment, as well as those too small or vast to see — such as mycelium networks, storm systems, underwater worlds, geologic structures, and cosmic bodies — provide me with a constant source of inspiration. Through my art, I’m interested in visualizing the connection I see between their shared shape and pattern through an abstracted language of geometric motifs, organic textures, and even gold leaf (a reference to the star matter that makes up all life). My mixed media approach highlights an ongoing interest in integrating craft-based techniques and materials — such as custom paper marbling, collage, wood and encaustic wax — into my art practice.” Originally from the American West, Jamie Gray’s practice is currently established in Kansas City. The artist has exhibited and sold artworks in both the United Kingdom and United States. Academic degrees in graphic design deeply underpins her visual language, which is often inspired by a nascent interest in the sciences – from mycology to astronomy. Her work had been described as both "geometric and primordial" and explores the juxtaposition of simple motifs with layered textures, as well as the integration of traditional craft-based techniques – hand-marbling, encaustic wax, and gold leaf gilding – in the making of contemporary artworks.
