Hill of Dreams: Jessica Warboys



ISBN: 9781849763974 Category:


Known for her ephemeral, ethereal works informed by personal or collective memories, Jessica Warboys (b. 1977) works across a wide range of media, including performance, film, sculpture, and painting. Beautifully illustrated, this book investigates the artist’s use of symbolism, her vocabulary of forms, and her approach to landscape. Warboys often combines her materials with a natural element, such as water or the sun, applying pigment directly onto large-scale canvases before submerging them into the sea and allowing the waves to distribute the color. The action is deliberately related to performance, and the resulting canvases create a physical document of her collaboration with the sea. Published to accompany a touring exhibition, this book brings the work of a rising star to a new audience.
