Herrington’s recent work ‘CAVE’ references acts of creation, decay and excess. The sculptures are created by an excess of raw material, growing into forms not entirely under the artist’s control. The working process involves the application and re-formation of this excessive raw material often to the point of objects collapsing (or re-forming) themselves under their own weight.

Jessica Herrington’s art practice explores installation, painting and sculpture using a wide range of materials including glitter, paint, plaster, polymer clay and chemical crystal growths. Herrington is interested in working with a range of media that explore notions of preciousness and value.

Jessica is currently completing a residency at the Research School of Chemistry, Australian National University.
