Jacqueline K Calladine was born in West Bromwhich, England in 1964. She is an artist, placemaker and textile anthropologist working with a focus on environmental art and slow design practice. Her work explores the connections between people and place through the creation of artisan textiles, drawings and site specific installations. Investigations into local color, materials, and resources underpin Jacqueline’s practice, and the resulting abstract work maps both the artist’s external environment as well as her internal landscape. Through her thoughtful observation of place, she seeks to find meaningful connection with a land that isn’t her own while researching themes of dis-connection, migration and identity. Jacqueline’s work invites the viewer to both reflect upon their own relationship with place, and to celebrate the unique qualities of the locality in which her work is created.
