  • Description:

    Jacquelyn Stephens paintings are inspired by microscopic other worlds. Particle physics, pulsating atoms, cell growth, minuscule amoebas and of course she can never escape the otherworldliness of underwater sea life. Jacquelyn grew in and by the sea at Flinders. Ultimately the paintings are about our sense of awe and wonder at these miraculous building blocks of life.

    'This 'Anatomic Mass Bio-Cluster' series looks at the tiny minutiae of life with all its order & chaos and what is real but cannot be seen with normal sight. I use microscopes and magnifying devices in my exploration of micro-worlds. The ovoid organic motifs and the organic cluster patterns allude to biological life forms, cell growth, and to the visceral otherworldliness of the building blocks of life, and in their arrangement, to the pulsating rhythmic patterns of universal forms that so often stop us in our tracks in awe of their magnificence. The paintings themselves grow organically from one starting point, each cell popping out from the one before. I use microscopes and magnifying devices in my exploration of micro-worlds. I wanted the painting to be sublime, peaceful, and beautiful yet also have a feeling of fragility and vulnerability'.
