Creating artwork is experimental in the initial phase of developing a concept, much thought and practice are involved in what determines a piece. For me, being an artist is a delicate balance between the idea you wish to express and a clear understanding of the techniques you need to grasp in order to best express the intention of each work.
I enjoy capturing process work in the studio. I share insights into the studio, sneak peeks into current work on the go as well as invitations to upcoming events. To stay informed you can obtain details in the channels provided or subscribe on the news tab.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
I have always been intrigued by visual dialogue and the role art plays in society, which naturally directed my studies. Curios, by nature, obsessive by default, persistent by choice and driven by an artist’s vocation to engage in producing work in the subjective realm. I am Jessica Michelle Le Roux, a South African visual artist practising in sculpture and interdisciplinary techniques.
My work queries preconceived world views and highlights the impact of the butterfly effect. In doing so, I seek to bring awareness to consequence, generational perspectives, and our collective impact.
I was born in 1989 in Modimolle, Limpopo, before turning two, my family moved to the Cape. At the age of ten, we relocated to Settlers in rural Limpopo. In 2007 I relocated to Pretoria to pursue my BA at Tshwane University of technology. After graduating, I met my fiancé and moved to Heidelberg, Gauteng where I currently reside.
