''This complete series was made during lockdown. As I set up a table at home to create room for creativity and mindfulness, I was observing the influence of light and time. I started to paint, not knowing when I would be able to go out again. With of the absence of direct light, I worked with mirrors, dichroic cubes and artificial light sources. The main idea was to capture light at different times of day and interpret these moments with gestures of varying intensity and a dialogue between colors. Much like my own inner dialogue, some days the results were harmonious and some days they were filled with intensity. One of my color theories is about the addition of different colors and their interaction in response to the surface. Colors can have a completely different impact depending on the proportions in which they are used and their juxtaposition. My painting process is about reducing the gesture, by doing the same over and over, until it becomes a choreography, with the gesture as a ritual and a mindscape for both me and the viewer. All these works are made from reclaimed wood, jig -sawed by hand. It is central to my practice to use sustainable materials and to encourage the art world and other creatives to be more sensitive to this subject.'' – Jessica Moritz
