Jessie Edwards Thomas
Jessie Edwards-Thomas (born 1991) is a visual artist based in Britain. She is from Snowdonia, North Wales. Her artistic practice explores the individual through power, voice and community. Her most recent published work explored the representation of the self in the community through the pathway of mental health and homelessness.
Her work questions the individual's need for belonging within the construct of society. She uses the relationship between the photographer and the sitter to investigate these ideas as part of the image.
Her practice utilises the what-ifs of fiction and imagination to explore said themes of power, symbols, societal structures and connection through storytelling.
