It seems Saatchi curators rather like The Groyne series, as another piece from this series has been included in a curated collection, perhaps I should paint some more for this series –
“I’m very pleased to let you know that I have chosen your work to be featured in The Sporting Life Collection on Saatchi Art’s homepage. You can see the collection here:” Bridget Carron, Saatchi Art’s Associate Curator and Art Advisor.
Painting by Jacqueline Hammond featured in The Sporting Life Collection on Saatchi Online, curated by Bridget Carron Saatchi Art’s Associate Curator and Art Advisor.
“The Groyne Series came about from observing the shapes of kids playing and jumping into the sea from the sea walls (groynes). Painted in silhouette with glimmering highlights, these paintings seems to evoke memories of the height of summer for many people and could be anywhere in the world. These works make a virtue out of the craze of ‘tomb stoning’ as quoted in the mainstream press.” Jacqueline Hammond
