Artist Profiles » Jacqueline Cockrill

Jacqueline CockrillJacqueline Cockrill studied Fine Art at Medway College of Design in England and holds an Honors Degree in Graphic Design from Hull University. During a successful design career in both U.K and NZ she has continued to paint “as a different vehicle for communicating ideas without the imposition of commercial constraints. Experience in each discipline manifesting in the other”. Time spent in the studio has gradually increased as interest in her work grows and she now paints full time.

Her dynamic works in acrylics and mixed media on canvas exhibit both bold and subtle qualities. From a distance lines and broad areas of strong colour bring structure to the works but look closer and you find rich textures incorporating vibrant colours and markings that continue to engage. ” I do not wish to create any mystique around my paintings - whilst they may be abstract interpretations of landscape or hint at the marks left by the passage of time they purposely retain a level of ambiguity that allows for personal interpretation”.

Jacqueline’s latest work has been influenced by an increasing fascination with the organic marking of time passing. Weathered surfaces, patination and the scars of history. Texture, layers, cuts and scratches bear testimony to the works painstaking evolution. The process of applying and scraping away pigment produce marks that cannot be completely erased. They remain as painted traces and textures revealing what lies beneath - recording what has gone before.

Jacqueline’s work is held in both corporate and private collections in New Zealand, England, Australia and Singapore.
