OPEN EXHIBITION 2023
MEET OUR JUDGE JESSIE BEARD
This years judge Jessie Beard is an emerging abstract expressionist and abstract landscape painter.
Her work observes nature, with an accentuation on colour and
movement. The process begins on location, immersing into her surroundings,
taking photos and storing what the senses are experiencing. Jessie uses
abstraction to depict and reconnect with the place and the associated fleeting
memories and emotions. Numerous layers and patterns are used to portray the
depth, intricacies and stories within nature and present an appreciation of the
natural world in euphoric interpretations.
Jessie has an Associate Degree of Creative Arts & Design
(Distinction) from Charles Sturt University
and a Diploma of Visual Arts (Distinction) from Great Lakes TAFE.
