More Information

Drawing from a rich trove of sources ranging from Renaissance portraiture to tattoo traditions, Jamison’s egg tempera paintings incorporate personal narratives, myths, folk tales, and dreams to portray a vision of the archetypal woman as magical, innocently sensual, and strong, yet potentially vulnerable. In her paintings threads connect but also bind, needles threaten, and darkened veins envelop her maidens’ heads as if mapping their bodies and souls. Jamison’s paintings seem like parables that probe what it means to be female in both interior and exterior worlds. Jamison lives and works in Roanoke, Virginia.
