My recent work explores my obsession and fascination with patterns. Referencing numerous sources including architecture, textiles, fabric, clothes/fashion, design, and cultures around the world, I recreate and synthesize patterns and shapes from these elements into a decorative style. I was always drawn to painting more than other media, so rather than using actual textiles or materials in my work, I render the patterns and details all by hand with acrylic paint. On a greater scale, the works function as a constant search for cultural identity, and ultimately myself. The combination of various patterns, designs, and motifs strikes a larger conversation among viewers about content, origin, and culture.
Jayde is also available for commissions - original paintings, murals, painted furniture, licensing, fabric, commericial and residential projects. Email her to inquire about a commissioned piece.
