Jessica-Lucky Airlie

In my last few posts showcasing the emerging talent of Scotland's Art Colleges, I am featuring graduates from Gray's School of Art, Aberdeen.
These silk typed letters are Jessica-Lucky Airlie's exploration of female bonds and relationships.
They are fragile and almost remnants of the past, with their use of old fashioned (old technology) type. The texts tell private often embarrassing stories about girls transition into womanhood.
"The overall softness of the work creates a space of reflection, which allows the viewer to question their own experiences while feeling part of something bigger; a sense of acceptance despite the stress and tension experienced whilst becoming an adult."  Jessica-Lucky Airlie
