Circling

15 May - 10 June

The circling and flocking of birds is a leap of faith - they are connected in perfect harmony. Jacqui Gibbs Chamberlain has used the sparrow repeatedly in her paintings because they are industrious, providers and social, flying in unison onto the canvas. In Greek Mythology, the humble sparrow is called the Goddess of Love, being the first to sing on a new day.

Jacqui is an artist of figurative subjects with life and energy. She lives and paints on an isolated farm in Port Levy, Banks Peninsula with her husband and daughter, Phoebe.

She has travelled extensively; the US for workshops, Papua New Guinea, China, India and Samoa. She has lived in Switzerland and has spent time painting in the Outback of Australia.

While Jacqui's subject matter is invariably the human figure, it is secondary to her exploring shape, form and composition. With the layering of ideas and paint, the work becomes a myriad of vibrancy and movement. Jacqui is a previous recipient of the CoCa Award.
