My name is Jemmie Ponting and I am a visual artist from Calgary, Alberta. I mainly work with 2D mediums from drawing to painting. The main concept of my work stems from the train of thought – moments, words, images, and dabs of paint- creating visual narratives pulled from modern-day instances. This could mean various things such as personal experiences, what I see on social media, topics from conversations, or just intrusive thoughts in general. These visual combinations require no pre-planning, resulting in illustrations I don’t quite understand but yet completely do. The experimentation of it all makes everything visually abstract, but this way I’m able to express what’s in the moment, or to be specific, what’s in my head.
