Jess Cochrane’s work is a celebration of imperfection and authentic beauty.
Jess Cochrane is an Australian contemporary visual artist living in London. Cochrane’s work questions the relationship between society, consumerism and pop culture. Her focus is on feminine beauty, illustrated through the application of paint over photographic images.
Cochrane reflects upon insecurity and perfectionism in the modern age. Connecting the history of art, design and advertising, she plays on the idea of pop culture and its roots that are planted in both displaying and disguising parts of ourselves. She delves into the social and cultural implications of the construct of beauty and how this impacts the mental and physical wellbeing of women of her generation. Her work is a celebration of imperfection and authentic beauty.
