Pink Sofa Conversations | Jessica Ballantyne art as a therapy & porn as an influence

I remember meeting Jessica Ballantyne in a meeting. An art meeting. Those killer eyes and killer ideas. I remember her perfectly, always walking into the room wearing the most outlandish hats on hearth. I wondered… what does she do – what kind of art? And there it was this massive, gigantic, naked woman with a flower coming out of her ass. You cannot miss her paintings, and you should not miss her! Maybe not your taste, maybe too much for you, maybe not for your living room – your kids may wonder what that flower is doing there – but this woman is pure FUEGO.

With time I understood that, sometimes the first layer does give the wrong idea. Not that I was not aware of this social phenomenon, I suffered from it all the time, but at times we women are more sexist then men. You know the saying about judging a book by its covers? Well, Jessica’s surrealist influence became obvious to me the more I saw her other paintings and the rest of her series. She is a cocktail Molotov of pop culture, surrealism, feminist art and porn. Art is a therapy, but she is also a therapist herself. Committed to teaching and to bringing people together. She is a doer and as such, I texted her two days ago about this crazy “Pink Sofa” idea. And here we are. 48 hours later … let the show begin!
