Jacqueline Balassa’s 2017 exhibition follows the tradition of the travelling artist. She depicts places of pristine wilderness, in South America, Africa, Europe and Australia.

Jacqueline makes drawings and colour notes on site and uses these and her memories to complete oil and gouache paintings in her studio.

In her world, the landscape is benign and welcoming with only the slightest hint that this may not always be so. Jacqueline aims to preserve a real sense of the places she paints while at the same time, she transforms them using her invention and imagination, so that her images are recognisable yet unfamiliar.
