Jessica Warboys @ British Art Show 8, Edinburgh

13 February 2016 - 8 May 2016

Jessica Warboys works across film, performance and painting – diverse practices that are, for her, closely related. In particular, she sees her large-scale Sea Paintings – made on the beach with the sea as her collaborator – as ‘prints or traces of a performance.’ Scattering pigment onto sea-soaked canvas, she allows the movements of the waves and the wind to determine the distribution of the paint. Warboys will make a new Sea Painting for each leg of the exhibition’s tour. Her large-scale work for Leeds was made at Spurn Point in East Riding of Yorkshire, a narrow strip of sand between the North Sea and the Humber Estuary. The colours of this work – yellows, purples and greens – were chosen by the artist to reflect the tones found in the surrounding landscape. For British Art Show 8 in Edinburgh Jessica Warboys’ work will be exhibited at Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
