The artist will create a new work amidst the bamboo grove near the Univerity art galleries. The work is loosely based on her recent series Elemental whereupon she inserts books into tree branches and stumps. After initial installation, Whorl will work in collaboration with nature over the period of one year.
Originally from Northern Ireland Jacqueline is based in Hawai‘i. She creates conceptual objects that often question and re-contextualize their original materials and conventional use, often blurring the line between genres, or seeking to push the technical boundaries and expectations of a particular medium. Jacqueline has worked primarily with the book form for eighteen years. She received her MFA from UHM in 2000.
