Jaq McCaughern returns to Sam Scorer Gallery to showcase her exquisite panel work and paper clay slip structures.
An exhibition of work inspired by the building blocks of life
and the patterns that emerge as the earth and life on earth
Jaq comes from a background in historic and decorative arts.
She uses the historic techniques of layering gesso and gilding
combined with acrylic paints to produce
The landscapes are on large panels showing the hot terrains
and icescapes as though viewed from above. Full of texture,
colour and catching the changing light, these large works are
constantly and subtly changing throughout the day.
Complimenting these large earthscapes are the
delicate porcelain like nests and orbs made from
paperclay slip. These exquisite forms look at the
emergence of life in the form of plant structures and
egg shapes. They are quite simply as beautiful and
delicate as the processes of nature they reflect.
