About the Artist

Jessica Nothdurft

Jessica Nothdurft is a multimedia artist living and working in Meanjin/Brisbane. Following studies in visual arts at TAFE and then at the Queensland University of Technology, Jessica has developed her art practice to explore highly personal, evocative depictions of her life experiences. A winner and finalist of multiple awards, Jessica uses a variety of media, including oil, ink and metal. She has honed a lifetime of experiences into a recurring exploratory theme, often in faux-naive stylised depictions. By drawing on the familiar visual languages of artists from Giacometti to Louise Bourgeois and Jenny Watson, Jessica uses her art practice to explore the existence of struggles below the surface and the many facets of shame.
