Jess Johnson’s practice is inspired by the speculative themes of science fiction, mythological cosmology and comic books. Her richly layered drawings often convey amplified psychological states; wordplay and complex patterning offer a humorous channelling of her own agitation and paranoia. Johnson’s work depicts parallel worlds of geometric encryption and symbology. A conduit to those brief, phosphorescent moments of visionary divination and revelation.
