Jessica Davis explores mankind’s reliance on intensive farming methods and the consequences of urbanisation especially on the animal kingdom and the natural world. She endeavours to raise awareness by creating thought-provoking artwork, sometimes employing shocking or even horrifying images to intensify her message.
Davis considers that her autism and special needs have led to a deep affinity within her personal work that resonates with the plight of animal suffering. Through her work, she strives to ‘give animals a voice’ and to promote the idea that we can live in harmony in this world we share.
She uses a wide range of mediums including drawing, painting, sculpture, along with photography and collography. Animals used in her practice for taxidermy have died of natural causes and are acquired from licensed and certified suppliers.
