Jessie Whiteley – Cringe


Watercolour on paper
29.7x42cm, 2020





Jessie Whiteley is an artist based in Glasgow, primarily making paintings. Her work derives from the multiplicities of fictions and realities in everyday life. Characters and narratives are processed through a visceral language to inform imagery that considers any interior as a folding of the outside. The aim is for connections and meaning to be made: this ultimately falls short and into strange places.

Jessie has an upcoming solo exhibition at Lunchtime gallery, Glasgow ‘As far as possible’, as well as a group exhibition at Flatland projects, Hastings ‘Painting open’. Jessie was a recent fellowship holder at Castro projects, Rome 2019-2020 and in 2019 received awards from the ‘Kirsten Scott memorial trust’ and the ‘Eton fund’. She is also a member of the events and performance collective ‘Bart Waltz’.
