An exhibition of new works by Caitriona Jackson in the Foyer of the County Museum, Ennis, Co.Clare on December 4th to 21st, 2012.
Caitríona has been based in Ennis,Co.Clare since 2004 & has been painting for most of that time. She has had various tutors & teachers along her path as an emerging artist, both formally & informally. Her work has been influenced by the deep encounters she was honoured to have over the course of her twenty year career as a psychotherapist as well as by her own journeys into many aspects of the healing arts. She now spends as much time as possible in her studio, continuing to enjoy external input and striving for the delicate balance between self exploration & communication that she considers essential to her work.
The work in this exhibition is informed & inspired by the inner world of emotional & spiritual process, by points of connection with the collective unconscious, & ultimately by the ‘fertile void’ from which acts of creation flow , rather than by objects or scenes from visible reality.
A degree of intentional composition combined with the texture & tactile quality produced by collage & layering of paint acts as a container for, & gives form to inner process. Caitríona allows the play of chance accidents & spontaneous mark making to facilitate the energetic flow of the unconscious to take form on the canvas. She uses colour & line to bring zest & immediacy to the work. The exhibition runs from December 4th with an official opening on December 8th, 2012.
