Jacque Parsley, Mixed-Media Artist


Jacque Parsley

Artist’s Statement

“In using organic and inorganic materials, I present iconography that creates a dialogue between the permanent and the transient, beginning with the process of collecting objects. Robert Rauschenberg once wrote, ‘A pair of socks is not less suitable to make a painting with than wood, nails, turpentine, oil, and fabric.’

“As a child I embroidered, wove potholders, collected charms, and played paper dolls. The influence of these fond memories has been integrated into my art by means of collage, assemblage, and embellishment with these artifacts. Strange juxtaposition and irreverent combinations of objects add to this intrigue. I have introduced paint, dyes, oil pastels, humor, and text to expand my freedom of expression. Each work reflects partly told tales, a moment in time that gives nostalgic visual narrative of memories that have been recycled, and a past that has been reinterpreted. These shrines to unknown individuals have a karma that is still unfolding to create a new paradigm.”
