Jacki Fewtrell Gobert
Jacki Fewtrell Gobert is a contemporary artist primarily working in acrylic on board. Her work relates to her immediate environment, both interior and exterior. Jacki’s recent body of work is based on her local environment at Brooklyn on the Hawkesbury River where she resides, as well as travels to Tasmania, South Australia and time spent in Paris. Jacki’s work is literal but she loves to exaggerate line and use of colour. She often depicts the mundane and tries to make the viewer see what is often taken for granted. Jacki brings a contemporary approach to traditional still life art. Her paintings focus on the beauty and comfort of the home interior - our treasured personal space filled with memories, furnishings, special objects and quirky art collections. Jacki refers to these paintings as ‘casual still life studies’. Educated at The College of Fine Arts (UNSW), Jacki has taught art and had numerous solo exhibitions since 1982 and has her works in many private as well as government collections. She has an impressive prize record having won the Mosman Art Prize twice in 1982 & 1985 as well as the Kirribilli Art Prize in 2011 & 2012. She has been a finalist in many art prizes in NSW including the Outback Art Prize and the Adelaide Perry Drawing Prize.
