This September Jessica Zoob will be opening her Sussex studio to share, for the first time, her latest collection ‘Inspired by Asia’. For the last three years Zoob has been travelling extensively through Asia and working from her Hong Kong Studio. For her ‘experiencing Asia is immersive and overwhelming. These paintings are a distillation and reflection of [her] adventures’. This exhibition represents the unique opportunity to witness Zoob’s life in Asia in her UK studio. The contrast between the soft Sussex countryside and the hard edges and neons of Asia is exhilarating, each one made more beautiful by the other.
My paintings are often about landscapes both real and emotional. To me abstract implies that the viewer is not going to understand the work and is not expected to – what is exciting to me is that people who love my work bring something of themselves to the creative process, because it is how they engage with their own imagination when they look into a painting that then completes the work
