Sacred Nude: A Solo Exhibition and Workshop Event by Jessica K Ballantyne

First Solo Exhibition by Jessica K Ballantyne,

Curated by Maimuna Adam

In her “Sacred Nude” (2018) series, Jessica K Ballantyne presents morphed female bodies, at once multiple and singular, in a dialogue with the Flower of Life, an ancient and supposedly sacred, geometric symbol. For Ballantyne, the Flower of Life becomes an emblem of an ethereal self, an energy found outside the physical body.

Noting the symbol’s appearance throughout sacred sites and temples throughout the world and in the research by, amongst others, Leonardo Da Vinci, it is used to bring a sense of stability and peace through symmetry. Ballantyne feels that creating and having Sacred Geometry within eyesight can serve as a conscious and subconscious reminder of its creative, healing energy. The bodies in the Sacred Nude series are either turning towards the Flower of Life or away from it, but the symbol remains a source of light.

The artist’s fascination with the Flower of Life stems from her contact, not only with the metaphysical qualities of Sacred Geometry, but also through her research into meditation and neuroscience. The Flower of Life thus became a symbol of divine wisdom and healing change that can be achieved through self-reflection or meditation.

The Sacred Nudes are bodies that are naked, surrounded or framed by lush drapery inspired by classical nudes within the Western cannon of female beauty. Using bodies familiar to her, Ballantyne subtly questions her own ego and attachment to the body. As a South African woman, of Rhodesian, English and Scottish descent, growing up in Apartheid and post-Apartheid South Africa, her nudes inevitably tell us more than the artist would initially lead us to believe. These are bodies are simultaneously presented to us as light while not negating the darker places of the soul; the ego mind and the fears associated with inhabiting a temporary, material body in a politically and socially unstable country. The Sacred Nudes subtly confront the Western cannon of beauty by distorting and disfiguring the bodies whilst simultaneously placing them within a ‘safe’ space where the light of wisdom or truth in the form of the Flower of Life can envelope them.

“As humans we have been bombarded with imagery of women. Unfortunately many of these images teach us to constantly view ourselves from the outside, as bodies and objects without subjectivity and presence. I rebel against this limiting portrayal of women and invite the viewer into a private, psychological space where I manipulate the physical body to speak about presence, transcending the ego and letting go of attachments to the body and mind.” – Jessica K. Ballantyne

The Exhibition

Sacred Nude is a free, solo exhibition of eleven mixed-media drawings by Jessica K Ballantyne, combining the nude with a surreal twist, a distortion and doubling of bodies alongside Sacred Geometry.

The exhibition celebrates the psychological, spiritual and the divine feminine and was a tribute to a meditation experience the artist had during a progressive workshop with neuroscientist and author Dr Joe Dispenza.

PRIVATE VIEW:

Saturday 22 September 2018 at 6-9pm.

EXHIBITION CONTINUES:  Saturdays from 13:00 to 17:00 until 20th October.

VENUE:

The solo show and workshops will be hosted by the delightful Retreat Yoga Studio.

ADDRESS:

Retreat Yoga Studio, 367 New Cross Road, London, SE14 6AT

The box-framed, Sacred Nude drawings will be available ( A1 size without frame) as well as hand finished, framed and unframed, signed, diamond dusted prints.

The exhibition includes workshops in mandala making, therapeutic creative arts, expressive arts and life drawing every Saturday.

All workshops need to be pre-booked as there are limited spaces available. Book online via the button below…

My newest commission.
Title: Eden’s Garden
Medium: Mixed media on paper
Size: 59.4 x 84.1cm

 

Eden’s Garden is the commission I completed recently. I don’t share all my commissions but this one was such a joy to create and my client and I were so pleased at how it turned out, I thought I would share it with you.

My commission process is simple. It starts with a brief conversation about what kind of artwork you want, in what theme etc. After we have sorted out the size, figures and themes I draft up a few ideas in the form of digital collages which I then send to the client to discuss. After discussing what we like and don’t like, we work together to choose the most thrilling composition which I then create the final artwork from, using graphite, spray paint and wax pencil on paper (in this case).

I fell in love with this drawing as I was making it. My client wanted Eve in the garden of Eden but I thought she would be lonely so I brought in Lilith to keep her company;) I decided to include Lilith and Eve in a sensual display of youth, eroticism and femininity. The flower of Life unites the figures through the snaking  pythons, one of which (on Eve’s shoulder) is an albino.

Close up of Eve. My client didn’t want the ladies to look identical so I thought it fitting to give Lilith (the Femme Fatale) darker hair and the innocent Eve, blond hair. Slightly stereotypical, I know, but I was playing on the traditional signs of a Femme Fatale vs an innocent, virginal being. What my client did specify, and these are in his words not mine (look away all you gentle souls) “Eve must have a hairy c*** or I’m not interested”

I had no problem with that. So with these things in mind I created Eden’s Garden and my client is thrilled with it so so am I. Hope you like it!

Yale Radio Interview with Brainard Carey


IMG_2689-e1390500063117.jpgIMG_2689-e1390500063117.jpg

I’m pretty excited about my first radio interview with Brainard Carey from Yale radio. In it, I speak about the Sacred Nude mixed media fine art series as well as the inspiration behind the work, my Kundalini experience and my new series : Kaleidoscopes.

Sacred Nude was inspired by a mediation weekend workshop with Dr Joe Dispenza. The weekend was magical, with talks about neuroscience and how meditation affects the brain and body in the most unbelievable ways. That I left feeling rather excited is an understatement. I realised the potential for meditation to change your life. The sacred nude series is a celebration of the joys and struggles associated with calming the mind through meditation. Sacred Nude speaks about the bliss state as well as the apparent hold the ego has on the mind and sometimes the body too. The Flower of Life is an ancient symbol which in these mixed media artworks, reflect the pure wisdom and love that is found within us all.

Please enjoy the radio interview with Brainard Carey, founder of Praxis and a lead figure in helping to share the world of artists with the public as well as being a creative force himself and helping many artists achieve stability in an ever-changing art market.

Greetings From a Dead Man: An Exhibition by The Tunnel Art Collective

Greetings From a Dead Man

An Exhibition by the Tunnel

Dates:

3 November 2017 – 5 November 2017

For their 13th exhibition to date, The Tunnel plays upon the theme of fake news: convenience and manipulation in content delivery for the masses. The work explores the ability of language and images to alter perceptions of current events, history, time and ultimately identity.

We have entered an era where alternative facts and fake news are synonymous with journalism. Interestingly, albeit problematic, this is not a new phenomenon, it has merely been brought to light for most, as of late.

Orchestrated for consumption, information is carefully pieced together, visual decisions made, content dissected for convenient inclusion; all packaged in palatable bite-sized moments for the public. As Jacques Ranciere puts it, “knowledge is a commodity and we are all inadvertent consumers”.

“But where did knowledge exist? Only in His own consciousness, which in any case must soon be annihilated. And if all others accepted the lie which the party imposed-if all records told the same-then the lie passed into history and became truth.”
George Orwell

“The spectacle is not a collection of images; it is a social relation among people mediated by images.”

Guy Debord

The Tunnel is a collective of artists based mainly in London. The group came together in 2014 to explore common themes regarding the meaning and purpose in art and living in an ever polarised society. Through various art forms and mediums, they express a desire to unite philosophy, technology and literature with art.

Burning the Phoenix; Revisiting my older works

Burning the Phoenix; Revisiting my older works

A Fashionably late Happy New Year!


Jessica Ballantyne I Strap.jpgJessica Ballantyne I Strap.jpg

The start to the new year was laced with so many deadlines and responsibilities, none of which related to my art practice, so unfortunately, I don’t have any new work to show. I thought I would show some old work that have almost become icons of my message, which has stayed relatively unchanged but has grown since my final year at University in 2008. I made ten paintings that year, I will show you four, two of which I own and two of which are in very happy homes:)

When I look back on these works I see how anger, confusion and depression were transmuted into something positive and the effort was made to try and make sense of it all, through imagery. I wasn’t afraid to offend- in fact, I wanted to. I became a passionate (and very angry) feminist through contact with various writings and art from a range of writers and artists exploring femininity in art. I just had to express my thoughts and emotions into something concrete- I chose painting.


Jessica-Ballantyne-Puppet-Chick.jpgJessica-Ballantyne-Puppet-Chick.jpg

I was very much influenced by one of our lecturers who had given us presentations on the ‘self’ in art, with artists like Anna Mendieta and Cindy Sherman being used as examples. It was only then that I realised that this is what I was doing through my work. I was trying to find the ‘self’ in my self, in my art or through my art. I was trying to give the figures in my paintings a fixed presence that I felt was lacking in my own being.

At the same time as wanting to give the figures in my paintings a presence I wanted to show how this presence gets undermined by the act of self-objectification, or turning yourself, your body into an object.

This is a rather strange phenomenon which can happen to both men and women (although its more common in women) in which you often see yourself from a third person perspective, like you are watching a movie of yourself. You may loose a sense of ‘hereness’ and ‘nowness’ and feel disconnected somehow from your body.


Jessica-Ballantyne-All-legs-and-Ass.jpgJessica-Ballantyne-All-legs-and-Ass.jpg

Along with these desires to show a presence in the female body I also wanted to confront the idea of the ‘gaze’, specifically the ‘male gaze’. I felt at the time that this so called ‘male gaze’ was responsible for this self objectification and lack of presence in paintings/photographs of nude women created by artists.

I wanted to create a new nude, one that was strong; physically, spiritually and psychologically. One that could not be turned into an object of desire, even if she was naked. One that turned away from the viewer, stared out at the viewer or repelled the viewer with strangeness of form or colour or both.


Jessica-Ballantyne-Seated-Nude.jpgJessica-Ballantyne-Seated-Nude.jpg

It’s no secret that I use my own body as the subject of many of my paintings, which could, in a way, be considered as a form of self objectification, which is ironic on a few levels:) Because of this, I want there to be a humorous, if not cynical exploration of what it means to be a woman or indeed a human being in this world, in this body and in these times.

I think many people are feeling a displacement of being, dare I say a looming sense of doom?? Okay lets not get pessimistic. I believe there are some wonderful developments in our world too. Someone remind me what they are please?

I think people, like me, are searching for something, they do not know what it is. I hope that it is a sense of self they are seeking and a sense of peace, which I think all human beings search for without necessarily knowing it.

Did you know that 2015 saw only 11 women make it to the Artfact’s top 100 living artists list? A huge improvement to the 5 that made it to Artnet’s 2011-2014 list yet, still shockingly low! The title is a play on women’s fashion magazines, a nod to the title of the first major, landmark, all female exhibition put on by the Pompidou in 2009 (called “Elles”).

This exhibition will be a small ruffle to the art world status quo!”

Metamorphosis: A Group Exhibition

Metamorphosis

A Group Exhibition exploring themes in Franz Kafka’s novel; Metamorphosis

 

metamorphosis

 

Opening THIS Friday 2 October 6-9pm!

I’m very excited about The Tunnel’s up coming show, our third group exhibition as a collective! Metamorphosis is a fine art exhibition which is based on Franz Kafka’s novella of the same name.

Artists in the exhibition include:

Jamie Stanton
Chris Paul Godber
Jessica Ballantyne
Lauren Mele
Julie Ann
Genevieve Leavold
Mathew Tudor
Elena Dimitrova
Mervyn Diese
Robyn Litchfield

If you are in the area, please do come along and support the artists!:)

The story revolves around a dutiful man who, overnight, transforms into a giant bug. All ten artists involved have interpreted the theme a little differently, for some of us our usual art work has elements of the kinds of themes present in the book; isolation, transformation, decay, the body, the grotesque, surrealism, etc.

I am making collage/box art objects. They are more sculptural but include photography, textiles and sculptural elements.
The ‘ box houses’ I have made are inspired by the fact that much of the story takes place in the main character’s room where he is a kind of prisoner- in his body as well as the space.
My art objects or “Domestic Dissections” reveal something of the inner world of thoughts,emotions and identity. I will also be showing my painting; Legs that Go, which hasn’t been shown in a gallery setting yet, so that should be interesting!
