EMOTIONS COLLECTION

e·mo·tion

/əˈmōSH(ə)n/

noun

  1. a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one's circumstances, mood, or relationships with others.

The Emotions collection started with Jess trying to find a 2D way to express her lifelong battle with Bipolar 2 disorder. Due to fear of rejection she hid her mental illness until her 30's. In that same fashion she started her collection with HAPPINESS to ease her audience into the more difficult emotions. Now that she's expressing herself she is finding more healing and joy everyday. Viewing her collection is watching someone dive deep into themself and pour it into a canvas. Every description starts with the definition to allow the audience to connect with the standard meaning then Jess adds meaning to every layer of paint. From color, to shape, to scraping away the layers.

PROUD Feeling deep pleasure as a result of one's own achievements or qualities or those of someone with whom one is closely associated. Depicting both the negative side with the dark background, and the positive side of self appreciation with the burst. In relation to mental illness pride can accidentally shame others. Also being PROUD can be a huge step towards self love and should be appreciated as such.
