Jacqui Colley is a contemporary artist based in New Zealand.
She is 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 artist working in a variety of painting and drawing processes. Through my abstractions I manifest and arrange complex ideas and notions in a poetic way. I feel my mark making aligns to music - an intrinsic language that might alter consciousness and allow an audience to identify on a visceral level. My work comes out of a practice of experimentation and observation of transformations, from a metaphysical point of view. I’m interested in how these areas intersect when it comes to my experience of time and place."
