The Groyne Series – Sit and Throw by Jacqueline Hammond (acrylics on canvas 40x40cm)
I’m very pleased to hear that my painting raised £160 for Teenage Cancer Trust in the art auction held on Thursday 14th June 2012. A total of £1,500 was raised for the charity from the sale of donated artworks by renowned local artists. Excellent stuff!
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.
