Calling all those art critics, curators and bloggers in the blogsphere who write about art. Can you help? Would you like to write about me?
I am trying to write a new artists statement / biography and finding it difficult. It’s that age old problem of trying to write objectively about your own work. I can write about the creation process and the work itself but to write a punchy and succinct summary about what I do is rather tricky.
If you write about art and would like to give it a go, I am offering a mounted print of your choice if I use your words.
I need 80 to 100 words to be published on my page (pictured below) in the new brochure for JAG Gallery In Brighton where I exhibit and paint.
Take a look at my websites to get a feel for the work I do:
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.
