JACKIE WARING

My road as a painter is hilly and endless.  I only hold a vague idea of my “destination”, continually exploring the many visual qualities of paint  in order that new possibilities might be discovered. I do often feel lost but look to other artists for guidance.  Analysis of their creative thinking and their practical processes can reveal ingenious solutions that they have developed for achieving their artistic purposes.   

My process often starts with a purposeful idea around a connection:

- Visualisation of a poem eg Stopping by Woods (after Robert Frost)

- Creating a contemporary image from ancient collective imagination (the Green Man)

- Extending experience of sculpture by reinterpreting it in paint  (after Barbara Hepworth)

In the life room, however, using a variety of materials, I sometimes try to represent the figure very quickly, bypassing consideration, carefulness and craft. I use materials immediately in an attempt to allow a purely visceral response to come through.
