Jeszika Le Vye

Jeszika de­scribes her­self as an “imag­i­na­tive re­al­ist pain­ter”, and her work ex­plores themes of psy­chol­ogy and phi­los­o­phy. “In my art, I ex­plore what gives a thing its sub­stance, its soul,” she ex­plains.

2 Pe­ter Pan

“This paint­ing ap­peared al­most fully re­alised in my mind. The pierc­ing eyes brought to mind Pe­ter Pan; an age­less child liv­ing away from re­al­ity, in his own world.”

3 Pied Piper

“This ex­plores child mor­tal­ity. I imag­ined a grim reaper-fig­ure lead­ing the child away from the known world. The lit­tle girl, not able to fully un­der­stand, is caught be­tween won­der, cu­rios­ity and fear.”

4 Co­coon

“When we be­come in­jured, there’s a choice of whether we want to heal our­selves or not. Do we drown our­selves in the pain, or do we re­grow dam­aged parts – like an oc­to­pus that’s able to re­gen­er­ate its limbs?”
