jessie nash, when i was your age

words by aish saffigna, edited by ashleigh ralph

jessie nash is an emerging artist based in brisbane whose practice is primarily rooted in oil painting. many of her expressive works feature self-portraits and document uncanny moments, alluding to everyday experience. she explores the push and pulls between the contemporary practice of a female artist and the expectations of traditional formal art practice. often toying with the ever-changing relationship between the artist and the sitter, her expansive paintings consider the nature of the relationship between a photograph and a painting.
