Stars On Canvas 2012 auction ends and this painting sold for £325 – WOO HOO!!!

Stars on Canvas 2012 – My paintings raised over £400

The painting I've created depicts a day 'Beside the Seaside' here in Brighton. I have used several pebbles 'stolen' from the beach as heads for the people (and dogs) taking a stroll along the promenade. I look for natural markings, chips and contours on the pebbles that can be used to resemble facial, hair and head gear type features. A hole in the pebble becomes a mouth, a chipped area separates the face from the hair and so on. Sometimes I paint on a face, sometimes I need do no more than a dot for an eye.

Jacqueline Hammond

That’s £426 raised for the Willow Foundation. Brilliant!

Collectively, the canvases can be seen as an exploration of modern culture – how we come to revere a diverse range of stars for their particular talents, skills and personalities, and sometimes simply for their fame.

This is your opportunity to own an original piece of artwork from a collection of over 300 artworks by stars from the worlds of stage, screen, art, music and sport, including canvases by Mo Farah, Wayne Rooney, John Hurt, Mike Leigh, Albert Irvin, Rankin and many, many more.

Painting sold – View of the Ness by Jacqueline Hammond

Said goodbye to this painting today. It went to a customer who lives in Shaldon which is fitting as that’s the place in the distance, on the headland, The Ness, across the estuary of the River Teign, near Teignmouth in Devon. Where my family are from!

Two Poppy Paintings sold to collectors this week

Amazing how things go – I said farewell to not one but two key paintings from my Signification of the Poppy series this week.

One’s going to a friend who must’ve brought me good luck as the other one sold on my website a few days later! Yes it’s time to paint some more.

SOLD! Breakthrough by Jacqueline Hammond , acrylics on canvas, 60x60cm

This painting ‘Breakthrough’ has been very popular, a best-selling print even, but for some reason I’ve hung on to it. That is until an old friend who had his eye on it several years ago got in touch to see if it was still available. I’m really pleased its going to a good home, and made someone I know really chuffed.

The other poppy painting sold on my website a few days later. ‘Field of Dreams’ is a larger canvas featuring a dreamy, imaginary landscape with fields of poppies bursting with life and colour.

Women of our Century – Paule Vézelay (Notes from BBC programme)

Women of our Century – BBC Iplayer

Series 1: Paule Vézelay

Paule Vezelay was one of the first British artists to explore abstraction. At a time when British society was suspicious of modernism, Vezelay became familiar with the ideas of European modernists and forged a significant place for herself among early abstractionists. In addition to being an important painter and sculptor, Vezelay was an illustrator, writer and textile designer.

(Biography – http://jlwcollection.com/jlwcollection.com/Paule_Vezelay.html)

First transmitted in 1984, Germaine Greer interviews pioneer abstract artist Paule Vézelay.

British painter Vézelay was neglected and ignored by the British art establishment for most of her long life, but she can claim to be Britain’s first abstract artist. She was born Margery Watson-Williams in Bristol in 1892, and changed her name when she went to live and work in Paris in 1926. Her studio was a street away from Picasso’s, and she was part of the group of artists who contributed to the revolution in modern art of the 1920s.

 She has some interesting things to say – Notes from the programme:

Refer to yourself as a man, never refer to myself as a man, although it certainly would been easier if I was a man

Did she do this because she didn’t want sex to come into the equation

Added the e – suggests feminine

 

What’s important is the work – is it original, well done

Knew exactly what she wanted to do

 

Didn’t want to be treated as a beginner at the slade

Independent

 

Looking for

 

Got to do a lot of thinking if you want to do something new. The more you think about it the more it changes

Got to work hard at art to be an artist

Got to be able to control it with your hand

Draw you line – the line must be right before you even draw it

 

Exactly as you intend it to be

 

Rhythm of line and mass

Curves – why limit yourself to straight lines

Why limit yourself when can have curves and straight

Suspended line in space – the first

Already formed before knew about their work – influence of artists who came to see

 

All the young men danced with – were killed in the 1st world war

 

Think would had a conflict – glad you escaped? (Love marriage)

 

Nice for women to have babies, most women want babies

Mr right man

Wasn’t in love with ones who asked

Encouraged? Parent’s dad yes

 

Men

Andre Masson – engaged – declaration of intention – changed mind – painful

Fruitful?

It was pleasant,

Who knows his work –?

Hans Arp, who had become a close friend

Great friendship with them both

Influenced each other – yes I think did

Identify with that group – did it help?

Although didn’t discuss it much – work was supposed to do that don’t you see

Why abstract artists keep form – see what others doing, draw or paint because can’t put into words what want to say

 

Do you think you communicated without words – ‘well it’s easier to write, not easy to choose, but to drawing takes time to get it exactly right

 

Paul Nash

In order to praise has to say nasty things about unnamed artists

 

Problem that family is your responsibility

 

After the war – able to pick up where left off

50 years old – Paris

Abstraction not understood in Britain

 

What u find pleasing in their lives and form

Directly to the emotions – language appeals directly to emotion

Joy

Enough sadness in real life

Joyful happy pleasing

As they used to

Worst thing – GG – book on women and painting ref.

Student/teacher

Worst – that he would fall in love with you

Safe – sunk if marries

Can’t make rules about it – doesn’t matter

You don’t think of that in advance

For most married women it phases out

Great mistake for a women to marry if she wants to be an artist

On marriage – women artists – if they marry their work gets phased out because ‘they don’t have the time or energy to take their work seriously’ – how can be expected to succeed with ‘

Often women if they marry, have children, their work inevitably gets phased out, takes a back seat because they ‘Don’t have the time or energy to take their work seriously’

How can I be expected to succeed with ‘One hand in the kitchen, one in the studio’! Gwen John

Concentrated, self-possessed – almost arrogant about painting

Ask about wives of artists who are artists themselves

Sophie Tauber-Arp – How can I be expected to succeed with ‘One hand in the kitchen, one in the studio’

Been greater if hadn’t married – came to see Arp – didn’t come to see her

In the end – she was asked to design for print –

Textiles – feminising women’s art – Issue?

What percentage still got – rather be with it rather than the sake of selling it cheaply – I like my paintings

Faith in yourself – never been shaken

Opinion I value – certain amount of confidence

Happy life? – Don’t know what mean by happy – did what wanted to do – names shit jibs

Satisfied u – up to a point

Beyond? – learn as you go along…

Poppy Collection by Smart Deco – inspired by series of painting by Jacqueline Hammond

Very popular as fine art prints Smart Deco developed the print to produce designer art print fabric to make deckchairs, lampshades and cushions. The poppy is a striking motif and looks so vivid in this painterly style.

Poppy print fabric, prints and paintings by Jacqueline Hammond

The original series of paintings depict the traditional landscape of poppy fields but with a contemporary edge that combines the beauty of flowers with the symbolic role of the poppy in association with war throughout history.

‘The Signification of the Poppy’ began with a painting created for a web based competition in 2007 called ‘Seeking Picasso’ in which Jacqueline was a finalist.  The theme was ‘A Troubled World.’ She was later commissioned by one of the judges to produce a series of paintings for exhibition.

Poppies for Remembrance Day in Brighton's Jubilee Library

Poppies for Remembrance Day in Brighton’s Jubilee Library

The works finely depict the poppy as a metaphor.’Remembrance Blast’ is the poppy worn for Remembrance Day: another life, another loss. Others depict farmed opium poppies; their beauty offset by the reason for their existence. There’s a simplicity with blue sky and horizons, most iconic, the piece Breakthrough’ represents survival.

‘Blowing in the Wind‘ and Carpet of Red’ are the pieces in which details are reproduced on fabric.

A field of flowers can be more than a pretty picture.
