Merging art, science and technology, Jessica Lloyd-Jones’ work explores concepts of energy, the environment and natural phenomena through the experimental use of materials, creating sculpture and installations that use light to reveal new perspectives on the world around us.
Currently undertaking a residency at Leitrim Sculpture Centre, Ireland, she is developing new work based on investigations into the industrial landscape and history of the Arigna coal mine and power station. She is also involved in Power in the Land, an arts project responding to the decommissioning of Wylfa Nuclear power station in Anglesey.
Past residencies have included an International Visiting Artist Fellowship in 2008 at UrbanGlass, New York, where she developed the Anatomical Neon sculptures inspired by biological electricity. Recent exhibitions include a solo show at Summerhall, Edinburgh 2014 and exhibitions at the Museo di Palazzo Poggi in Bologna, Italy and the Musee de la Main in Lausanne, Switzerland 2013.
Lloyd-Jones work in public and digital art includes a large scale mapping projection for Adelaide Festival Australia 2015, working with scientists from the University of Adelaide to capture microscopic images of minerals, plants and insects collected from the region.
Jessica Lloyd-Jones is a visual artist based in North Wales, graduating with a First Class Honours degree in Fine Art and MFA in Sculpture from Edinburgh College of Art in 2007.
