Jacqueline Austs’ work explores the relationship between autographic mark making, a response to place and the mechanics of making multiple images.
Autographic marks can express a sense of individuality; a moment captured. In an art world where print is ubiquitous, printmaking discussions are constantly peppered with questions about the mechanics of production and the autographic effect of the artist’s unique mark on the aesthetic of numerous reproductions.
Jacqueline has experienced artist residencies in Spain, Australia and New Zealand, all influencing her practice. From these residencies, she has considered more the idea of how man-made structures, both physical and ideological effect our relationship with the natural environment.
Jacqueline has works held in private and institutional collections, nationally and internationally.
