Jennifer Rooke, Untitled (I miss you), 2015, pen drawing on paper image

The works form a sentimental narrative of loss and desire yet the expression “I miss”, taken out of its original context and repeated, soon reads like a cliché. Wish you were here… takes an objective look at personal confessions of loneliness and longing to draw a humourous picture for a wider audience.

Jennifer Rooke (b. 1990) completed a Bachelor of Fine Art (Drawing) at RMIT in 2013. She has been involved with group and solo exhibitions and illustrates and writes for different Melbourne-based publications.
