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.”
“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?”
