The First Signs Of Summer

Jess Wilson

Jealous North

23 Jun 2022 — 17 Jul 2022

The June solstice marks the start of summer where the sun's rays are strong, and the smell of flora fills the air. A timely event for Jess Wilson’s newest exhibition, bringing together a burst of bright, botanical studies to the Gallery walls.

To celebrate the beginning of summer, on Saturday 2nd of July Jealous North will be holding a live screenprinting event and opening of the exhibition. Jess Wilson will be in attendance, demonstrating the printing techniques used to create these delicate floral explorations. 
This solo exhibition will present a series of works that celebrates nature's true beauty. Depictions of stunning floral arrangements will flood the gallery with original prints newly released for this show. These works exude energy and are a reminder of summer’s greatest moments in a sun-filled garden. 
Colour theory and form are at the heart of this series of work with each layer of ink balanced and perfectly emphasised by each other. Every element of Wilson’s compositions is formed by found flowers and leaves foraged throughout London. A truly uplifting side to Jess’ signature graphic and unique style is explored in ‘The First Signs of Summer’; capturing flashes of brilliance in each piece. 
The First Signs Of Summer runs from 23rd June – 17th July 2022 Please join us for the live Screenprinting event on Saturday 2nd July 4pm-8 pm all are welcome!
