Art. Man's best friend. Appalled by the wide range of animals exploiting industries, as well as the habitual and casual handling of animal products, Jongbloed finds herself confronted with this worldly dilemma. She explores the theme of animal abuse and devotes her time in creating works of art that mirror; on the one hand, the beauty of creatures and on the other hand, the brutality and perversion of our handling with these awesome creatures and the torment they are exposed to. She explores the ideas of beauty and pain. By combining; subtle adorning textures, patterns and form which embellish the painting, then paying close attention to detail and realism that bring you closer to the creature's soul. Sometimes exploring different dimensions with the use of collage that bring across soft and decorative imagery, yet when taking a better glans reveal disturbing brutality.
