This new collection of works is inspired by two separate yet distinctly parallel landscapes - St Ives in Jessica Cooper's home county of Cornwall, and the village of Messanges in South West France - both of which have special meaning to the artist. Similar in their coastal beauty, with wide white sands, simple architecture and laid back coastal culture, the essence of these two villages are defined on canvas in Cooper's distinctively reductive style. Created almost as a sketchbook collection of works, comprising large scale landscape paintings and a series of smaller works, they mark her return to painting the landscape after two years of work in digital and mixed media projects in the UK and United States.
