Whilst priming the board for my piece for the outside wall and thinking what to paint, I thought I’d just whack some paint directly on the wall. The ridges of glue left behind from the printed canvas on there before made a great texture for picking up paint and overlaying colours.
The result was a kind of Monet effect, until abstraction became an abortion! Classic case of of going too far and ruining it. This is what can happen when I don’t have anything in mind as to what I’m painting, I don’t take it seriously and get carried away, then attempts to rescue the piece only make it worse. Not the best method for such a public piece. Best get down there again tomorrow and do something with it.
It wasn’t too bad at this stage:
Jaxx experimenting on the outside wall of JAG Gallery in Brighton today.
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.
