ABOUT JESSICA SOUEIDI

JESSICA SOUEIDI GRADUATED FROM THE HAUTE ECOLE DES ARTS DU RHIN OF STRASBOURG IN 2015

Jessica Soueidi is mostly concerned about the evolution of women's status in today's society, in a world where their image is more important than their right to exist as human beings. Through social media, women create their own social personalities.On large drawings, she tries to represent the notion of false reality/virtual reality. There is a feeling of both provocation and despair. With a simple and energetic line, Jessica constructs images that attract the viewer's attention; he focuses on the facial expression. Her drawings are sort of big selfies. The charcoal is a dead material and the women she draws seem to be ghosts that come to life through the eyes of the beholder. The urgency to produce has always been part of her artistic practice. She is not afraid of dirtying, cutting or tearing up the paper. These traces are part of her working process. Recently, she has integrated the tag in her work: Jessica Soueidi defends a form of feminism in her artistic practice. Influenced by the daily news, Jessica Soueidi's drawings are strong. Her mental spaces are nightmatish and surrealistic. From Manga and Japanese artists such as Daisuke Ichiba to the early Netherlandish Renaissance artist Jérôme Bosch, Jessica Soueidi's influences are various and rich. She created her artistic world around contemporary art, literature, movies and philosophy. She is influenced by artists such as Jêrome Zonder, Myriam Cahn, Marlene Dumas, Ayako David Kawauchi, Henry Darger and many more. Writers such as Sofi Oksanen and Joumana Haddad nourished her imagination.
