Visiting Artist Residency 2017-18
Jaime Angelopoulos writes the following about her art practice:
In my art practice I translate immaterial experiences of sensation, emotion and behaviour into physical form. My work evokes human gesture while narrative based titles invite identification within the viewer. The process of writing gives rise to personal experiences that underlie and motivate my actions in the studio. Drawing is a critical tool for mapping out ideas and emotions through and immediate and exploratory process. Ultimately it is my hope to reflect on contemporary social experience.
