Exhibition: 'OUT OF THE ORIENT' by Jacqueline K Crofton (RSA)
JIQ JAQ Gallery, 112 Heath Street, Hampstead NW3 1DR, London
Opening Times: Tues. to Sat. 10am – 6pm Sun. 12 (midday) – 5pm Admission Free
This collection of oils on canvas and limited edition giclée prints by gifted Hampstead artist Jacqueline K Crofton is heavily influenced by Far-Eastern and oriental culture. The artist's extensive travels and time in Japan have clearly enriched her awareness and understanding of Far-Eastern craftmanship. On returning to the UK, she sought to transcend the barriers between Western and Eastern art, in order to produce truly international work, whilst continually retaining her own style and unique brush work.
This collection was initially inspired by the Japanese Kimono, a symbol of feminine beauty and grace. The artist makes strong use of soft pastel-like colours such as blue, turquoise and pink, creating images that embody radiant calm and quiet serenity.
