Santa Fe Fields Deckchair by Jacqueline Hammond in The Daily Express ‘Summer’s Best’ feature
More press for the deckchairs. I’m losing track!
Nice to see Santa Fe Fields painting getting picked up. This piece was inspired by some hot springs near Grenada in Spain that I went to when staying with a hippy in Andulucia. This was the view however I’m in the fields of Glastonbury Festival and long way from a newsagents.
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.
