Recent local press. There were two Wexford based artists in this years show.
 
'Do I Look Like'
My self portrait, which gained me entry into the show.
This piece was so well travelled. It had a spell in Ruth Borchard's  self portrait exhibition in Piano Nobel, Charing Cross...
From there it travelled to the wonderful Wallace Collection for Sky Arts Portrait of the Year 2018, (which, of course, was filmed in 2017)
Finally ending up in the prestigious  Gormley's Fine Art Gallery in Belfast.

2016 Paintings by Jackie Edwards

And so the year 2016 comes to an end, so it's only fitting that I show you just a few images of paintings I created mostly at my studio by the sea in South Wexford, Ireland.

It was an exiting year for me. Starting in Mexico, Lake Chapala, at a months long residency which started on 15th December, right through to January 15th 2016- what a start!

The images connected to Mexico, are on going,  and will not be shown just yet, but I am confident of my progress with this work and I have a good flow with it, but here is a little piece I painted over there called;
'A Proud Mexican'....for obvious reasons!



So here are some of the pieces I have worked on since which were shown in the Doorway Gallery, Art Fairs in Bristol, U.K, Battersea, Hampstead, Cambridge, London U.K and the Edinburgh Art Fair, Scotland...enjoy, I hope!

'Paper Heads' in Berlin

WHAT A SEND OFF!!

I dreamed that the last of the pieces from a collection I have finished would have a send off in Berlin.

Recently, I removed the collection 'Paper Heads', from my website, as I am working on new collections and although I and many people have had so much fun with these pieces- it was time to move on for other things.

But they were not leaving without a bang!

And what a great way to say 'Goodbye Paper Heads' than wonderful Berlin, in their own tiny little exhibition of only FIVE pieces.

Just for a bit of fun, and to raise a glass and say 'Prost' to the paintings that gave so much joy online, all over the world and with their showings in Scotland and Ireland.



The 'Paper Head' series was originally commissioned by a gallery in the Scottish Boarders in 2012, after one of the paintings, the first, catched the eye of the gallery owner and his wife, and they wanted many more like it!

So they had an exhibition and many more followed, I think perhaps around 23 in total.

But one can only do so much or the same type of thing, and, as my work progressed, I needed to paint other things. These were, after all, paintings that were asked of me,  and my life was moving in other directions.
I need to paint how I see and feel.

But so much work and research, and painstaking detail went into this work, and now I am SO very happy to present them in Berlin for the final goodbye.

Cant wait!

The exhibition 'Paper Heads' begins at 8 pm at Irish Berlin, Gr. Hamburger Str. 36A, 10115 Berlin-Mitte, Germany.
