Jessie Churchill: Slot
An exhibition in the courtyard of the Adamson-Eric Museum
Jessie Churchill currently studies sculpture at Central Saint Martins, England. Jessie’s practice brings painting into a 3d context. The paintings on display connect together to make changeable sculptures, which react to their surroundings. The abstract shapes are drawn from the reflections seen in the windows of the Adamson Eric museum courtyard.
Jessie Churchill is an artist currently studying sculpture at Central Saint Martins, London. She previously studied fashion and textiles at Leeds College of Art, England.
She has exhibited her works throughout the United Kingdom and within Estonia, including at such galleries as The Pie Factory in Margate, the Campbell Works in London, the Concourse Gallery in London, and the Raja Gallery in Tallinn, and had works in the recent Tallinn Flower Festival.
Her paintings have also been published in such books as Great New Fashion Design by zeixs publications, Berlin.
Jessie’s works fall between 2D painting and 3D construction. The pieces currently on display are drawn from the reflections seen in the windows of the Adamson-Eric museum courtyard. The paintings slot together to make changeable sculptures, reflecting the temporality of light and reflections. The tall walls of the courtyard push the sky away, and the introduction of blue panels brings the sky closer to ground level.
The exhibition grew out of winning the Adamson-Eric prize, awarded after the young sculptor had won the Grand Prix at the Vaal gallery.
