‘Big Sell’ Monochrome Window Display by artist Jacqui Petrie | 2nd-18th February

posted in: Events Archive | 0

‘The Big Sell’ designermakersCIO are fortunate to have Jacqui Petrie as one of our Trustees. Jacqui has donated her entire back catalogue of work to our ‘Save Our Story’ fundraising campaign. She has taken over the windows of designermakers21 with a striking display of her monochromatic work – charcoal, graphite and print – all of which is for sale. All the proceeds from her sales will go to designermakersCIO and into our fundraising campaign.

The Work Jacqui works in a wide range of media from drawing and painting to various printmaking processes. She takes inspiration from wherever she finds herself and has always been interested in landscape; the broad vistas and by contrast the pattern of things seen intimately closer. Recently extremes in weather caused by climate change and the beauty of floods, ice and snow transforming familiar landscapes have stimulated her imagination.

During very cold winters the deep puddles along the track that ran by her house froze into spirals which inspired a series of paintings, photographic prints and drawings. Large, bold charcoal and graphite drawings of local views down well-travelled lanes and textures of fallen leaves and foliage form a large body of work.
