Online Artist Talk: Jessie Edwards-Thomas | 16th September 2020

Elysium Gallery continues its series of special online talks and invites you to a scheduled Zoom event.

Jessie Edwards-Thomas (born 1991) is a visual artist based in Britain. She is from Snowdonia, North Wales.

Her artistic practice explores the individual through power, voice and community. Her most recent published work explored the representation of the self in the community through the pathway of mental health and homelessness.

Her work questions the individual’s need for belonging within the
construct of society. She uses the relationship between the photographer and the sitter to investigate these ideas as part of the image. Her practice utilises the what-ifs of fiction and imagination to explore said themes of power, symbols, societal structures and connection through storytelling.

This elysium gallery led event was made possible through funding from the Arts Council of Wales National Lottery stabilisation Fund. Helping support artists and arts organisations during the COVID-19 pandemic
