In our contemporary creative world young artists are becoming synonymous not with inexperience but with the ability to produce fresh and vibrant new works of art. Photographer Jessica Pettway is no exception.
Living and working in New York City, the 19-year-old still life photographer brings abstract objects to the forefront with her unique eye for composition and contrast. Creating still life imagery sets composed of juxtaposed pieces in odd positions has become somewhat of a speciality for Pettway,, and one that has caught the eye of many publications.
Pettway's ability to create surreal viewing environments has lead her work to be exhibited across New York City, proving that if a young creative has a brilliant talent, people will take notice despite their age bracket.
Pineapples covered in eyes, bent play dough candles, lemons carved into tennis balls and cucumbers disguised as cacti are just some of the strange and innovative visuals that Pettway creates, cementing herself as a young talent that isn't afraid to push the boundaries and pave her own way.
