Thought I’d better write a Facebook post just to let everyone know that I’ve just peeled my face off! … ‘How can this be?’ they gasp into their keyboards. ‘Has she had ‘face off’ with someone today?’ Well I guess you could say the pores are open to negotiation, after this weeks skinful of situations and scenarios! But what I actually meant that I have just performed a deep cleansing face peel to extract the oil paint, dirt and grime. Remember friends, the world is just a great big onion!!
Contemporary British artist, Jacqueline Hammond, is renowned for producing strong, punchy images that are rich in texture and colour. A prolific painter and multidisciplinary artist, she exhibits widely and is commissioned by individual clients, collectors and high profile brands.
Jacqueline’s inspiration comes from direct observation: subject matter is plucked from the world encountered every day. Some ideas evolve, others are reactionary. Thought-provoking themes explore today’s society, the media and cultural theory.
Whether inspired by the street or the sea, Jacqueline’s work has an edge: her paintings are consistently striking. Her natural disposition is to let the paint dictate the creative process, trusting the medium and her mind’s eye to translate the vision.
