The unique composition of this artwork broadens the typical view of a landscape. It is interesting to see the various layers so beautifully set out from the foreground through to the horizon and sky. The work also demonstrates Jassy Watson’s confidence in the composition through her bold use of ink. The strokes appear fluid and intuitive while swirling through the painting. The drips of paint towards the bottom add to the wonderfully organic mood of the work, while also reinforcing the artist’s contemporary skillset.

Layered in subject matter, structure and material, Jassy’s aptly titled Layers of Landscape is indeed this. From the undergrowth below the tram tracks, the winding roads break horizontal mark making to make way for curvilinear journeys towards the choppy blue sea. A bold painter, Jassy uses mixed media to capture her vision of the Australian landscape and its man-made interventions. Silhouetted trios of disparate trees are artfully dotted across the picture plane serving to further highlight her unique sense of perspective, space and distance all in the one image.
