Continuing the reflections theme, in which "the future’s so bright, it’s twisted" Jacqueline's ‘Acid Pavilion’ photo series depicts Brighton and Hove’s famous landmark as it’s never been seen before.
Says Jacqueline: “It’s amazing how a slight ripple on the pond’s surface could distort the building enough to make it look 'wonky' and 'surreal'. The ripples accentuated the global influences in the architecture, somehow making them 'of another world' - alien, space age, futuristic, psychedelic.” She adds: “Images reflect our modern day, digitally enhanced, saturated world and my paintings have a 'hyper real', graphic feel to them. Rather than attempt to paint the pavilion in a similar way, it made sense to use the photos themselves. Manipulating the photos with colour alterations in Adobe Photoshop gave the images a painterly quality.
“I think what my pictures say about Brighton that the future’s bright, if a little twisted, and things aren’t set in stone. There’ll always be new ways of looking at the old and achieving regeneration – moving on to a ‘brave new world’.”
