Jackie has painted on paper with soils, clays & earth pigments, collected from the locality. She spends time exploring the coast, walking and feeling her way as she seeks colours to collect, as she becomes embodied by her surroundings; gleaning information of the earth’s time frame and movement, animal and human habitation and movement, and the relationship of land edge and sea movement. Her painting practice becomes a meditation, slowly translating the ancient layers, the lay of the land, pathways and folds. She incorporates the macro and micro, seeing patterns and landscapes within a fragment of stone. Within the process of life, death and entropy, each piece has its own evolution.
