Jordana Henry - Artist
I grew up in the city in Sydney... I have been living in the Byron Bay area for almost 10 years now and definitely call this home now.
We have an outdoor shower on our property which is where my mornings usually begin, followed by coffee (always) and then the wrestle to get both myself and my daughter ready and out the door in time.
There are many places that I am happiest but if I had to draw the ideal scenario it would probably have to be in my studio, uninterrupted, music or audio book playing, two beers deep with fresh painting supplies.
Reading- "Normal People" by Sally Rooney
Watching- "Chefs Table"
Listening- Whatever playlists I have just been recommended or an audio book.
That Art is the foundation of everything we do.
The only person that you can truely rely on is yourself
That she is capable of reaching any goal with hard work and determination
Inspiration is fleeting.... I am not sure you can pick what inspires you.
Its more like a gift or something that whacks you in the face unwillingly.
It isnt something I go looking for.. but I guess at the moment I am most interested in the female form and the thing that ties us all together as females.
I guess whenever I have had a solo show in the past I like to take a break afterwards to decompress and process the feedback from both myself and others... I guess making work is a vital part of my being and there is only a short amount of time you stop doing anything that is vital.
I am confused about the work/ couple of works I am making at the moment.... there isnt much more to say.
Anyone that has even given me their honest and most sincere opinion of my work.... I find it the most mentoring when someone can not only tell me what they feel about my work but also why they feel that way?
I think they are all one thing... the same! They come hand in hand.
I am terrible with self discipline... I am pretty impulsive so if I want to drink wine or buy art or furniture or whatever it might be then I just do.
The Marguax Necklace in red paired with Anita Necklace for sure!
