The painting process is to explore a visual language that ‘construct’ distinct images which hold it’s own proper entity, without a subject matter or representing something in the real world as we know it.
Jirlow believes that what is not out there is possible in the artwork. She has no wish for interpretation nor representation. It is self-evident, beyond wording.
In her own word:
In my creative process, I switch between being the Painter or the Finder who uses colour and form as a tool, and the Observer. That is my way to push myself towards the unexplored. Suddenly I find something; a balance, an equilibrium, an excitement, a direction or a movement that talks to me and fits into my unseen image world, beyond wordings.
I am happy when the obvious occurs. The image that I feel just works. The image that leaves me with a sense of content. The image that, with colours, shapes, lines, rhythm and light, builds a piece of artwork that, despite its two-dimensional surface, feels like a room to enter and that forms a standalone entity.
The artworks contain traces of emotional memories, kinetic memories and moods.
If time is given, if the viewer takes its time, here is something to be in and to remain in for contemplation.
And I find traces of myself in this new and unknown.
