ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Jacqui Hawk was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and grew up in the English Lake District. In 1994 she moved to the United States and now lives on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
She began her career in the arts over 30 years ago. She is an experiential artist, impacted by a deep visceral connection to her soul and the innate desire to depict her intimate feelings and views on to the canvas in a spontaneous, raw and abstract self-expression. Color choice and formal elements are spontaneous and intuitive and driven by her own internal dialogue, emotional in nature and a metaphor for her life’s journey, from British origins, travels around the world, personal struggles and challenges, events in society. They embody the magic and whimsical illusions of a child, the strength and wisdom of a woman with an old soul. She brings an emotional voice and dialogue to the struggles of friends and strangers, and visually transcends the impact of that meeting, the lessons learned, and the associated inherent truths, in color, pattern and texture.
She works mainly in acrylic and mixed media, including wax, pearlescent powders, gesso of
different consistencies, stained glass pieces, collage, gold/silver leaf, and unusual objects she finds washed up on the beach. Her recent compositions are organic and primitive in nature and
reveal a range of emotions and narrative expression of joy, hope, peace, renewal, enlightenment and self-awareness.
Her work has been featured in solo, invitational juried state and national exhibitions
and represented in private and corporate collections in the US, Europe and Asia. She is
a member of Cotuit Center for the Arts, Sandwich Arts Alliance and the Cape Cod
Museum of Art.
