Jacquie Haselden took part in the recent New Zealand Painting and Printmaking Awards 2012 and was among one of only six artists in the Waikato. The event attracts well-known and emerging artists nationally.
The judge chose from around 300 artists’ works, and only 50 of these were selected to be displayed.
Jacqui’s work, “A Frayed Edge”, is a silver pen drawing on board, finished with resin, and was sold to a Hamilton business. Her artists’ statement said:
“My work explores the process of repetitious labour of the hand. My
hand-drawn loops reveal traces of narrative embedded in the connected and
disconnected threads. These repeated gaps, loops and disruptions suggest
stories of longing and loss.”
The judge was John Daly-Peoples, an Auckland art consultant and critic.
