Winged guide  (Jacquline Hurlbert)

Archival limited print.

Size: 8.5"x 11"


"I use symbolism in my artwork to convey an idea or story.
My paintings are sometimes three or more paintings deep, one painting on top of another. The outline of a face, an eye, a hand or claw can be evidence of the painting that came before.
This technique is called pentimento. A pentimento is an alteration in a painting, evidenced by traces of previous work. The word is Italian taken from the verb pentirsi, meaning to repent. I've taken this technique to the extreme by literally painting an entirely different painting on top of the bottom one, not simply altering a section.
This works for me psychologically. I view my paintings as I view my life. I'm layered with new experiences and take on personality adjustments as I go about my journey. Everything that has made me who I am today resides inside my skin - you can't see it but all my history is there. 
My paintings mimic this process of growth and renewal. The results are complex combinations of rich texture, story and mystery. High quality imaging and giclee printing translate these qualities to my limited edition prints as well."
