Jackie’s work focuses on themes of time, labor and place that are heavily rooted in her family’s farming heritage. She uses common objects and transformative processes like cutting or twisting to change their natural functions. By representing landscapes in an abstract, ethereal and poetic way through the transformation of materials there is a reference to the fragility of the landscape as something constantly changing over time.
