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’.
