Jess Blandford (b.1973) is a British artist living and working in South East London.  

My work is often preoccupied with repetition (and its relationship to intimacy), invisible work and with domestic and bodily space.  

Unstable structures (including shapes and patterns) have often featured in my work.   I am interested in how acts of repetition made by the hand, can never be identical.  I try to explore how this 'failure' creates hidden layers and as such generates depth and intimacy.  Domestic and bodily space are often contextual references to this notion of the intimate.

You may guess that I am also a mother of two young children.
