Studio view, Jacqui Colley, Cobalt, 2021 oil on canvas, 1.2 x 1.4 m
Jacqui Colley is a contemporary artist based in New Zealand.
She's interested in the intersection between the organic and the mechanised in nature - and the ways in which this impacts human experience and shapes our perceptions.
"I am an abstract expressionist working in a variety of painting and drawing processes. Through my abstractions I manifest and arrange complex ideas and notions in a poetic way. My work comes out of a practice of experimentation and observation of transformations. I’m interested in how these areas intersect when it comes to my experience of time and place."
