  • Artist Biography

    For Jessica Albarn, inspiration continually stems from her love and sheer fascination for the intricacies of the animal ecosystem and the most delicate of living things. From the tiniest wasp, to the epic wingspan of an eagle, Albarn examines the very real vulnerability of her animal subjects amid the modern world. The artist primarily makes use of almost forensic detailing to highlight the incredibly important plight of the bee; if bees don’t pollinate, the food chain will breakdown spelling disaster for mankind! Albarn is also fascinated by the psychological dramas we project onto these taboo animals, their symbolism and the emotional tension held in their image.

    Albarn has exhibited extensively and has two books published featuring her work- ‘Bee-headed’ and more recently a children’s book ‘The Boy in the Oak’ a dark fairy tale which she also wrote.

  • Artwork Analysis

    ‘This print originated from a large scale drawing that was displayed at Nelly Duff for my solo show ‘The Birds, the Bees & the Butterflies’ in 2010.

    Chumbawumba is a martial eagle. I visited him at bird sanctuary and was blown away by his ferocity and strength. The story goes he was rescued at Heathrow Airport from illegal smugglers. He had been abused and then saved but ultimately trapped by humans. He was an incRedibly powerful bird with the most delicate heart shapes in his breast feathers. ‘ – Jessica Albarn
