Jess Bosworth Smith
Jessica Bosworth Smith is a visual artist and illustrator based in Cape Town, South Africa. She is interested in the exploration of the multidimensional field of illustration; from the development of narrative works to research-driven contemporary art pieces. Jessica has an experimental approach to her work and process plays a large role in her creative development. Her work often uses alternative psychology and magical realist theory as a starting point for her explorations of themes of the uncanny, memory, and liminality.
