Untitled 2017-19, artwork by Jas Sykes
I am a young artist from Worthing, based in Manchester where I have just finished a degree in Fine Art & Art History. Playing upon a series of juxtapositions, my work creates feelings of both tension and intimacy that begin with the discordant colours and poses of nude figures and extend through various dualities. I see the post-postmodern condition as creating an embodied and juxtaposing mood because, through technology, we are brought closer, yet a space has been created amongst individuals where isolation lurks. One can feel at peace with such isolation yet simultaneously feel discomfort at being isolated as social media makes it feel like you’re the only one who’s alone.
Selected prints are also for sale at cottononmcr.com or can be bought directly from me.
