As a visual artist, Jaajr delves into the intricate connections between the self, time, and the continuous change of the universe. Through a practice-based approach that revolves around the exploration of materials and the art of making, she seeks to unravel the mysteries of existence and translate them into works that challenge the boundaries of traditional art forms.

By immersing themselves in the creative process, Jaajr's art seeks to bridge the gap between the tangible and the intangible, inviting viewers to contemplate the interconnectedness of all things and the fluid nature of the universe.


✹Materials as language

10th November 2020

Today session is all about how an object can be self-explanatory. We exercise thinking about the language of material throught quality of its use, how it can be influence and be influence by context, as well as the sprectrum of human interpretation.     

Epoxy clay gilded  with gold leaves

For this week practice, I showed the sample I made to my classmate and we exchanged our thoughts in the question of ‘What does it say?’ Through material and technique.

Interestingly, hearing other’s people opinion on my work, indeed ,giving me different aspect to see my own practice. And it also helps me to think about other possibilities of form, colour, context, etc. In exchanging thoughts from some of my classmates, the feedback mostly about the strong sense of emotional attraction. The colourful texture with shiny and glossy material draw people attention to their appearance. Also one of my classmates told me that this set of clay work reminds her if her childhood memories.

Epoxy clay with spray paint

In the afternoon I made another 4 objects using one materail which is epoxy clay. It gives soft stretching look which work really well with my message. My intended message is to play with the reflection of light on silver metalic surface. From the previous set of objects what I found is each texture give different shiness and I like the ones with patterns so this one I try to develope that quality by ,instead of flat/compressed form like last week, trying to make it into more 3d like coiling and forming using lines. 

Can one learn to ‘write’ with a material, understanding what it offers and it’s limitations?

In order to write with material, one must understand as many aspect of that particular material as possible - Its quality, how to use, background/cultural/historical context, component etc. Reseach by experiment and making is the best way to understand each material - try to push, pull or think about the opposite way to make something out of it.
