Josephine Jakobi is an artist whose practice is centred on ecology and life cycles. Based in far Bungalook, at the edge of the Colquhoun Forest near Lakes Entrance, her work is an immersive process – immersing herself in the landscape and the material exploration of the shared habitat of her world.
Jakobi often takes a mixed media approach to her work, crossing between scientific observation and art. Elements and traces of the landscape appear in her work, creating synchronicity between material and the environment.
Jakobi’s artwork is deeply concerned with the cycles and poetry of the natural environment.
