Artist Jess Johnson was born in Tauranga, New Zealand in 1979 but spent a good portion of her career based in a warehouse studio and gallery of her own in Melbourne, Australia before relocating to New York earlier this year. The themes of language, science fiction, culture and technology all hold a place in the inspiration held within the founding blocks of her drawings. Johnson uses her personal interpretation of these subjects to create her densely layered and symbolic worlds full of psychedelic geometric patterns, non-descript human forms, and scattered snippets of text. Recently Jess has experimented in translating her drawings into animated video to enable her audiences the simulated experience of entering the hypnotic spaces depicted in her drawings. Also worth noting is her amazing collaboration with Romance Was Born in the creation of the designer clothing line, Mysteria Wisteria, which you can view here!!
