Born in Edmonton Alberta, Vancouver-based artist Jessamyn Box uses acrylic paint, marker, crayon, charcoal, and ink to create large, abstract works of art that are grounded in colour and explore the relationship and territory between objects and form. Her work is a multifarious, dynamic fairy tale that forces the journey’s plot and resolution into the eye of the viewer. Box’s work can be found in private collections across Canada and in the United States, as well as VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation’s collection.
