Jacqueline Bishop

For the last twenty years Jacqueline Bishop has focused on painting psychological and political elements regarding the natural world. She has traveled through the disappearing forests of the Americas in Peru, Bolivia, Venezuela, the Brazilian Amazon, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Belize. Recently she also journeyed to Calcutta, India. Jacqueline Bishop is concerned with memory, the feminine and organic aesthetic, and the truth behind destruction of the forests and the extinction of species. She does not consider her work as political activism but uses metaphor in her paintings and installations to communicate the politicizing of nature, beauty, decay, life and death.
