Jacki Fewtrell Gobert is a contemporary artist working in primarily acrylic on board. Her work relates to her immediate evironment, be it the interior or local urban area.
“I love to exaggerate colour and at times line as well.”
Her paintings focus on the beauty of the home interior, our treasured personal space filled with memories, comfortable furnishings, special objects and the homely art collection. Jacki refers to these paintings as ‘casual still life studies’. Paintings of interiors are fascinating images. They are a combination of the artist’s imagination and documentation of life as we live it. The paintings can provide detailed insights to others lives and daily experiences while aesthetically offering interesting and beautifully composed imagery.
