Jackie Berridge

Artist, Arts administrator, Curator

Approved: 16.08.2006

Jackie’s current work focuses on the many facets of human behaviour, in particular the 
subtle nuances of body language – the tilted heads, twisted bodies and small involuntary 
signals signifying elements of power, control, vulnerability or openness.  From the kindest of 
gestures to sinister acts of Machiavellian treachery she is interested creating a theatre 
where the viewer can interpret clues and props according to their own experiences. 
  
Inspiration is wide and varied and includes dramas, medieval paintings, 20th century 
monologues, space travel and bric-a-brac. Visits to the National Gallery have been 
particularly rewarding, especially seeing the 'San Sepalcro Altarpiece' by Sansetta .  Berridge 
has embraced the architectural qualities, iconography and interesting perspectives of this 
painting, juxtaposing these elements with more gestural and expressive mark making in her 
own work.
