    Jorja Shadbolt

    In my 2020 works I tried to communicate ideas around life and death, more focused on how I believe the body is only a vessel, which isn’t as important as the person piloting it - what you did in life, your personality, and impact is what matters. Anything flying - like moths, shows this release of the person piloting a body. I also try to communicate how life feeds off death by pairing alive subjects with dead or dying subjects. Mushrooms are very common imagery in my art, because to me they are the biggest symbol of life feeding off death. 

    My art relates to my personal history in colour - I can see my personal growth through my colour choices, changing from weak baby blues & pinks to warm yellows and reds as I took more pride in myself. Yellow quickly became my favourite colour, it's the first colour your eye gets drawn towards in a room, I’ve been trying to be more like yellow."
