Winchester College
'Living Rooms'
15th September - 20th October 2019
Solo exhibition and artist in residence
Private View: 18 October 2019

Jackie Berridge’s work focuses on people in domestic settings, representing a world of interior and exterior; a place to dream, a sanctuary or alternatively a place of captivity and imprisonment. Whilst occupants live cheek by jowl they also remain solitary and independent of each other. Colour, pattern and visual clues provide insights into character whilst the expression of individuals remains passive – allowing for personal interpretation.

Jackie's drawing 'Living Rooms' has been shortlisted for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize.

Supported by the Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust, the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize is selected from original drawings and led by its founding Director, Professor Anita Taylor, since 1994. The Prize has an established reputation as the foremost national exhibition of drawing practice and is known for both its promotion of artists and makers who draw, and its championing of the role and value of drawing more widely.

The Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 exhibition includes 67 drawings by 62 practitioners - including works by students to those by established artists and makers – which were selected from 1,801 submissions received from across the UK. The independent Selection Panel comprised Chantal Joffe RA, artist; Andrew Nairne OBE, Director of Kettle’s Yard, University of Cambridge; and Dorothy Price, Professor of History of Art at the University of Bristol and Editor of Art History.

"Jackie Berridge continues the anthropomorphic imperative in her intriguing white paintings, which feature a delightful array of expressively depicted hybrid forms and creatures jockeying for position in a fragmented pictorial structure. The loose sketching painting provides a great counterpoint to the precision engineering of Kaur and the two shows sit well together."

Review by Tom Hackett
Permindar Kaur - Hiding Out

A-N Interface
Extract from David Manley's blog

"(detail) was in my mind last evening when looking at Jackie Berridge‘s exhibition at the Lakeside in Nottingham.Indeed its hard not to be drawn into the myriad details in these large new canvases that take her (now) familiar (to those of us who know her previous work) creatures into a host of new adventures in a fabricated landscape quite unlike any other I can think of in current figuration.

I’m always drawn back to the playground of my early childhood with these pictures (I like others have been more familiar with these images as large scale drawings up until now) but with the painterly elements of colour and handling we seem to have moved into another even more dreamlike (and sometimes nightmarish) vision.

The colour palette is especially rich and in a warm early evening spring sunlight it was set off to particularly good effect but it only serves to lure the viewer into an initial security thatis entirely disturbed by the content, both formal and narrative. What is really strong in this work too is the knack of knowing when to leave well alone so that painterly incident and the author’s handwriting shines through.

This is good stuff and shows Jackie’s work reaching a maturity not just as the excellent draughts person she has always been but as a painter of real authority. I’d say you should go see it."
