Artwork description

The work Thread is a part of exclusive mini series called ‘By Chance’ made by the artist Wolffia Inc. The pieces have a feel of collage created with paint. As if there is nothing permanent about the arrangement of the shapes. One could possibly pick the painting up, shake it and collectively they would rearrange themselves into new positions. 

Space is the main thing that differentiates this series and other works by Wolffia Inc. In most of her work, every section is touching one another. This series rather focuses on spaces between each single item.Using a range of different techniques, the pieces have a far more comforting and warm quality than if they were to have been produced digitally. The artist’s desire was to marry two distinct elements: precision and liveability. Structure that still feels inviting and relaxing. 

This work is a mixture of spray paint, heavy body acrylics and mediums on hand prepared Dibond. The finish is ultra matte with subtle satin gloss accents. 

Within each composition the artist has used heavy mediums to bring depth and dimension that is more visible on closer inspection.

Wolffia Inc

Working under the moniker of Wolffia Inc, British abstract artist Emily Jackson has worked as a hair and makeup artist throughout her career thus far and is emerging now as an artist. Her background in makeup and hair styling provided an outlet to express her creative talent, especially through colour, which Wolffia Inc is now channelling into her art.

The artist’s works are bold, full of colourful expression and complementary shapes. Her designs begin digitally using Procreate software which she subsequently adds textures and patterns to – the subtle tactile nature of her works is focal point for Wolffia Inc. This tactile character of her works contemplates the artist’s love of textiles which developed through her extensive travels across the globe. Contrasting elements play an important role in her works, playing with the various textures, distressed/damaged areas and differing finishes.

The name ‘Wolffia Inc’ was devised in a slightly ‘tongue in cheek’ manner. It correlates with the idea of the Wolffia plant being the smallest species of flower on the planet, something the artist feels reflects an element of herself, and Inc plays on the word ink – the vision that something small can have a mighty visual presence was important to the artist. Typically working on a large scale, Wolffia Inc has created a smaller scale series exclusively for Artistellar.
