ARTIST STATEMENT

Sylvia Jeffriess is an Australian visual artist living and working in NYC.

Her paintings and drawings explore the meta-narrative of folk as a cultural touchstone from varied sources as underground comix, childrens drawings, brut-literature, folk art and diy music culture. Drawing on the paradox between the modernist impulse towards a raw source of art in the "primitive" and the seamless presentation of a resolved art object – her paintings and drawings are looking for a new place to house the democratic narrative of folk yet are self consciously aware of the futility and irony of this pursuit in the creation of contemporary art in its current market form.

She has exhibited extensively in Australia (T.C.B. Inc, Gertrude Contemporary Art Space, Ian Potter Gallery National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne Arts Centre) and overseas (Bleeker St Arts Club – NY, NY, Robert Blackburn Gallery - NY, NY, Tokyo Art Book Fair, Japan, Imagine Gallery, China) and participated in various artist-in-residence programs in Australia, China and the United States.
