Background

Originally from a fashion design background, gaining a BA in fashion & design at Essex university, Jackie Kingsley refocused her artistic abilities on Kiln Formed Glass studying for three years at Richmond College in Surrey, taught by a number of internationally renowned glass artists,among whom were, Max Jacquard, Matt Duran, and Angela Thwaites,before being accepted by Farnham University for a Postgraduate Contemporary Crafts course, where she specialised in Kiln Formed cast glass, leaving with a Masters Degree in 2009. Jackie has shown work at galleries through out London and Farnham


Statement

Jackie combines glass and copper casting these two mediums together in a kiln, the result is the smooth reflective, translucent quality of the glass, with the irregular densely opaque, organic form the copper takes, lending an interesting mergence to her work, both visual and tactual.

Jackie uses this technique, to communicate her preoccupation with the emotional and physical actions, reactions, and interactions, within society, affecting the way we think, feel, react and interact within and outside of our personal spaces. In particular the reaction, causing us to place unnecessary restrictions, on ourselves, and our lives, and those of others that we have influence over, thereby eroding the wholeness of our lives, and therefore the wholeness of society, as we retreat into the perceived safeness of ourselves, and the confinement of the immediate surroundings we create, as a defence.
