About the artwork: The partner painting to 'Projections of the Collective Unconscious', this artwork is equally as stunning in the application of both artists' skills and mastery. The portrait has a strong, confident stare, directly at the viewer. The greyscale tones contrast with the bright yellow 'squiggle' of Dr. Suits, which jumps to the foreground to conceal and reveal details of the model. The bright pink strips are not photographed true to colour, but they are equally as strong as the yellow colour used. This is a captivating image and combines a modern, almost digital aspect with surreal, organic and ethereal beauty beneath.
About the Artist: Jessie Rawcliffe is a multidisciplinary artist and designer located in Christchurch, New Zealand. Employing frustrating care for pedantic detail paired with surreal omissions replaced with negative space, her growing body of work is a continual exploration into the roles of the subject and the viewer in figurative painting. Working as a designer and illustrator has allowed her to produce and collaborate on projects that exist in the public realm, however, it is only recently she has had the opportunity for her art practice to do so also.
Nathan Ingram, pseudonymously Dr Suits, is an Ōtautahi-based artist and designer with backgrounds in fashion and urban art. Ingram’s current work is grounded in the qualities of line, colour, surface and texture, juxtaposing the influence of the urban environment as a space of transient presence and constant physical flux with the calm repose of the studio. Varying in scale, and at times spanning framed surfaces, Ingram’s paintings grapple with the balance of order and chaos, a sense of poise often masking more energetic or physical exertions.
Ingram’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums around Aotearoa and overseas, including the permanent collection of the Canterbury Museum. His public works span various cities and he has been included in festivals such as Taupo’s Graffiato (2021), Ōtautahi’s Spectrum (2015), and Flare (2022).
