ABOUT JESSICA SOUEIDI

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

Jessica Soueidi was born in Versailles in 1990. Later she studied Fine Arts at the Haute Ecole des Arts Du Rhin of Strasbourg. She specialised in painting by following renowned artist Daniel Schlier's classes. She graduated in 2015 (MFA).

 

I am particularly concerned about the evolution of women status in today's society, in a world where their image is more important than their right to exist as human beings. I explore the relationship between women and social networks # instagram.

Through these digital spaces, women create their own images in order to escape from the everyday reality. They are masters of themselves, their own muses and I am part of this new generation. 

My artistic work revolves mainly around drawing and painting. On the " Instagram story", I prepare the sketches of my future works. Then I draw selfies, on different formats, both provocative and strange. I try to represent the notion of "false reality" that exists through digital technology such as social networks. On one side, the woman emancipates herself but she also tends to lock herself behind popular hash tags.

With a simple and energetic line, I build images that catch the viewers’ attention. He is confronted with figurative forms and focuses on the expressions. Collage allows me to boost my drawings; the pieces of paper are lightly glued to the leaf. It only takes a bit of wind for the drawing to come to life. I am also a vandal. With spray paint, I tag words that are strong: #thug #obey #girl. In this sense, I defend a form of feminism in my work.
