“Wallaroy” talks about the happiest era of my life, the 80’s - a decade in which we lived on Wallaroy Road, in the Sydney suburb of Woollahra. The word that comes to mind when describing this body of work is abundance, reflecting life, love and laughter”
An English country style residence tucked away from sight. Secluded, serene, peaceful and tranquil. Sun drenched and relaxed with the laughter of children being the order of the day. A constant stream of friends and family who popped in for impromptu meals and a chat. These are the memories which have inspired this latest collection.
Reminiscent of her childhood in Sydney, hydrangeas feature prominently in Jacqueline’s latest series of work. Hydrangeas have laced their way throughout her life, and are impregnated in the recesses of her mind representing safety, family and heritage.
Lashings of paint denote the “abundance” and contemporary backgrounds reflect “the now, and the future”, silver represents the deco style artefacts that graced the rooms left by Jacqueline’s ancestors.
