Mixed Media & Oil Paint on Gallery Wrapped Canvas


These bigger dot paintings really start to visually vibrate and resonate with universal themes of the sublime of things big and small. Not only do they make a eye-catching statement the dots and colours mesmerise with sublime possibilities contained within the tiniest things.
It is from my 'Dots & Little Things' & 'Infinite Possibilities' series around 1997-2006 which dealt with various forms of communication and where I really literally put print media under the microscope. Essentially it was the beginning of my fascination with all things microscopic and minuscule worlds.

FRAMING IS NICE BUT NOT NECESSARY as the edges are cleaned, staple free and painted a rich colour to compliment the painting.

All paintings are varnished with Professional Quality Artists Varnish, once they have been photographed. This gives a protective surface and an exquisite sheen that really makes the colours powerful & eye-catching.

Jacquelyn Stephens is a Melbourne based artist who has been successfully exhibiting her paintings for over 20 years since completing a BFA in Painting at the Victorian College of the Arts. Over the years she has had several successful solo and group exhibitions in commercial galleries and artists run spaces. Her paintings can be seen in many media publications and are held in private collections worldwide.

FYI - Here is some more about the painting:
This series explores lines of communication and I put print media literally under the microscope. The dots in the painting have a direct relationship with the dots used in mass media print images. I took tiny areas from newspaper print images and put under visual devises such as magnifying glasses and microscopes. I then reproduced, abstracted and manipulated the dots I saw, painting each one by hand with textural paint. The effect created is these intense clusters of rhythmic vibrating spots and dots that pulsate across the canvas. Each painting becomes these crazy clusters of rhythmic vibrating spots and dots that pulsate through space. Reminiscent of dancing molecules and frenzied atoms appearing in my later work.
Although the process of making was very important, this series is also a lot about seeing and looking and very heavily influenced by POP art, especially Bridget Riley.
This is a little of what David Thomas, who was kind enough to do an essay for this exhibition, had to say about the ‘Infinite Possibilities’ series....’ Discovered beneath the microscope, Jacquelyn Stephens explores the minutiae of the processed image, reduced to its component dots of colour. She likens this to scientific investigation of cellular structures, both artist and scientist employing the microscope as the means of magnification and entry into a world beyond normal vision. Immersed in these patterns of colour, she creates on her canvases illusions quite different from her sources, of forms floating in new fields of space, investigating the interplay between pictorial depth and the flatness of the painted surface’.
A lot of fun making these but sometimes it did feel like I was going a bit dotty.
