5 Questions with Jess Cochrane . 26 May 2017

 

When were you last moved by art? For us, it was when we came across emerging artist Jess Cochrane‘s work. And wow, such beautiful pieces they are. With the seriously recognisable style of painterly, pink hued brush strokes over photographs, her work has been exhibited widely across Australia, including the highly coveted Brisbane Powerhouse.

 

Jess took a one-minute interval and answered 5 of our questions about her and her practice

 

Where did you grow up? 

Born and raised in the Capital.

 

When did you start becoming interested in visual art? What got you into painting? 

I’ve always been interested in it I think. I was always drawing and making stuff as a kid. It’s just always been a part of me. I started painting professionally only two or so years ago. I got into it because it felt like the right path.

 

What is the ethos of your practice? 

To change the way we consume visual information relative to popular culture. By gesturally painting over the top of a photograph I’m rejecting a societal pressure and a perfectionist nature. The work pushes viewers to think twice about what they consider ‘beautiful’ to look like. It’s about creating a more inclusive space to have this conversation.

 

How did you develop your signature style of painterly brushwork over photographs? 

I developed it throughout uni. It’s still developing but it requires being active in working and exploring new ideas.

 

What’s planned for the future? (Where can we see your work exhibited next?)

Lookout for The Landsdowne Hotel.

Sundays in Superga

Sundays in Superga . 12 April 2017

 

As winter draws near, we invite you to enjoy a moment with the ultra chic footwear brand Superga. Their new campaign presents a clean, refined, yet relaxed mood, featuring the beautiful Australian coastal textures and tones as a backdrop.

 

As the cooler months approach, nothing goes better with the relaxed Australian style than Superga.

 

Epitomising everything we love about our landscape during winter, this campaign captures the gloomy skies, moody waters and the raw textures of seaside cliff tops. Showcasing the iconic brand in our own natural habitat.

 

Crisp and fresh sneakers in monochromatic colour ways are worn with fluffy knits, washed denim and metallic socks – depicting the effortless and casual Australian manner we are known for.

 

Superga is clean, relaxed, yet sophisticated, with a hint of edge that takes us through day to night, and we can’t help but notice how well it complements every Interval look.

 

This campaign features Aussie girl @abbeyginns. Having grown up on the Sunshine Coast, Abbey is a total beach spirit at heart. Her laid back attitude and carefree vibe is reflected through her fun loving imagery on Instagram.
