JACKIE HOYSTED: The Candy Store

Jackie Hoysted, Pick n’ Mix, 2014, Encaustic on wood panels, dimensions variable

Jackie Hoysted sets up an installation of encaustic paintings that look and smell good enough to eat. The scented paintings are minimal, candy colored transparent fields, some with sugary textured rectangles floating on top. Her confectionery of sweet paintings plays with the ideas of art as eye candy and the gallery as a sales room, but also doubles as a personal contemplation on desire and craving. Opening Reception and Artist Talk: Friday, July 18, 7 – 9 p.m. Closing Reception: Sunday, August 17, 2:00 p.m. About the Artist: Artist Jackie Hoystead is a native of Dublin, Ireland currently residing in Washington, D.C. Her work has been selected for national and international juried shows and has been awarded multiple solo shows throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Jackie Hoysted is a multi-media artist who creates traditional objects of art with the objective of revealing or highlighting conflicting or opposing notions on issues that are personal to her: identity, feminism, economy, religion and health. She is particularly interested in creating projects that investigate portraiture and that invite public participation. Jackie is among the many acclaimed artists whose work is featured in “Digital Art Revolution, Creating Fine Art with Photoshop”. The artist talks about her work, her creative philosophy and the transformative power of art as an agent of social change in this video interview conducted by “Digital Art Revolution” author Scott Ligon.
