Jacquelyn Stephens – “Amethyst Life Field II”

Starting bid: $250.00

1 in stock

My paintings are inspired by microscopic other worlds. Particle physics, pulsating atoms, cell growth, minuscule amoebas and of course I can never escape the otherworldliness of underwater sea life. I grew up in and by the sea at Flinders, Australia. Ultimately the paintings are about our sense of awe and wonder at these miraculous building blocks of life.

I wanted this painting to have a beautiful colour vibration. It is inspired by colour energy and movement and my work with the vastness in microscopic and atomic worlds where the light and colour go a bit crazy. The forms are in flux and have a positive active mood with the colours electric and possessing a vivacious energy. The vermillion, the pink and violet are so alive with active colour energy creating a dynamic for the effervescent dance of the ovoid forms all over. These red violet and purple forms create a highly charged electro-field of colour pulsating across the surface, mesmerising and enchanting at the same time.

Description

Jacquelyn Stephens paintings are inspired by microscopic other worlds. Particle physics, pulsating atoms, cell growth, minuscule amoebas and of course she can never escape the otherworldliness of underwater sea life. Jacquelyn grew in and by the sea. Bioluminescent organisms, coral reefs, urchins, seaweeds and as many different life forms small and large as your imagination can conjure, from years of Snorkelling around the back beach at Flinders.

Ultimately the paintings are about our sense of awe and wonder at these miraculous building blocks of life. And then our reflection on the fragility of these vulnerable worlds and our precarious position within these natural spheres.

Since completing a BFA Majoring in Painting at the Victorian College of the Arts, Jacquelyn has been successfully exhibiting her paintings for over 20 years. Many of the key themes in her work have been informed by her interest in science, nature, water and the domain of medicine.
