'Somebody Else's Garden' by Jessica Skowroneck

£1,500.00

Jessica Skowroneck was born in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, but lived in Sweden most of her childhood. She studied at the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht and received a Bachelor of Fine Art with first class honours in 2013. In 2014 she was the winner of the the Royal Award for Modern Painting in The Netherlands. She now lives and works in the vicinity of Utrecht, regularly showing her work in The Netherlands and abroad.

‘My work revolves around nature and the search for sensitivity and intimacy. Growing up in Sweden next to a forest has had a profound impact on how I see my environment today. As a child, nature was neither something to be conquered nor something to be longed for in a romantic sense. It was simply there, and I was part of it. This total and intimate relationship with nature and all surroundings is what I want to show in my work. Part of this relating is a sense of wonder and awe at the mystery of this world and the impossibility of intellectually understanding it. Still I’m trying to reflect something of this in my paintings.’


‘Looking at Jessica’s paintings, you see silence and movement. If you open all your senses, you can hear the wind and possibly the low humming of insects, see the heat vibrating. Under the painter’s hands, strokes of paint form sand, vegetation, and stones, even as they appear to dissolve, become liquid. Back to the origin.’ (Hanne Hagenaars from the text “It’s all one,” 2021)

FAQ

How do I hang a new piece with works I already have?

We love mixing in new works with existing are in your collection. It can be a great way to do this as part of a gallery wall or a specific place on it’s own. Buying more contemporary work and hanging this alongside traditional work you may have inherited, is a great way of modernising a space and giving these more traditional pieces new life. Our advice would be to have a common thread that runs between the 2 pieces, that ties them together - this could be similar tones or colours, or a similar theme or subject in both the works.  

Does art make a good wedding present?

We have lots of pieces that would make brilliant wedding presents. Buying art as a gift is such a meaningful present and will forever be a talking piece for that couple, and tell a story of the people that bought them that piece and remind them of their wedding. Prints are always an easy and affordable wedding gift. Or if you want to club together with some friends and buy an original framed piece, you will definitely win the prize for most unique gift!

How do I choose a frame?

This is a very favourite topic of ours - we LOVE framing!  How you frame depends on the space you’d like to hang the piece in.  If you are hanging on a neutral wall, we love to go for a colourful frame. And using an interesting moulding, be it reeded or bobbin, is a great way of adding texture to a room.  For works on paper I love a deckled paper edge - in this case I love to float or surface mount the paper, so you can see this deckled edge and then a simple wood frame. If you are trying to make a space more contemporary, framing can be a great way to add to this, like a tray frame on a large canvas piece. I also love framing traditional art works in modern frames and vice versa; a modern little print in a really traditional old antique gilt frame.

Do you sell gift cards?

Yes we absolutely do - this is the perfect gift solution for that person who either has everything, or you just can’t choose which artwork to buy for them. A lovely gift for someone to choose exactly what they would like from our large collection of art work.
