ARTIST INFO

Natisa Jones b. 1989 Born in Jakarta, Natisa Jones is a visual artist who works between Bali, Indonesia where she spent most of her childhood growing up – and Amsterdam, Netherlands where she is currently based. 

Education

Jones completed a Visual Arts diploma studies in Chiang Mai Thailand and a bachelor’s degree of Fine Arts Painting in RMIT University - Melbourne, Australia. Through the process of writing, drawing, painting, and video, Jones establishes a tightly-knit relationship between her personal life and her creative practice. Raised in a multicultural house hold by a Javanese mother and a Canadian father, Jones pulls narratives from her personal experiences to explore issues within identity and reflect on social dynamics. Framing moments of vulnerability, while every so often pinching sentiments from popular culture, text is regularly incorporated with imagery. Prompt by her multicultural upbringing, Jones seeks to emphasize the notion of duality as an underlying theme in every aspect of her work.

About the postcard artworks

With 'In All My Glory' - I wanted to celebrate all sides of our being as women. Although it is easy to celebrate ourselves through our triumphs, it is the hardships that truly place our sense of self-love and acceptance on trial. Its through hardship that we learn who we truly are, our strength, weaknesses, our priorities, and how to continuously fight ourselves. Dark blues, light blues, light yellows peeking, thick limbs, pink mountains. To be soft and playful, yet to take up space and become heavy. All of it is okay. All of it is valid. It is an ongoing process to take ownership of all of it. But through every crack, every detail, I'd like to celebrate - in all our glory, as we are. "
