I am keen on painterly brushstrokes and I love to explore spontaneous mark-making. I started this collection with a loose floral, sketched in watercolor brushstrokes. I kept the same color palette when I moved on to making intuitive marks on the canvas and letting one brushstroke or shape inform the next. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Jacqueline Maldonado collection without some texture and technique juxtaposition.
Capturing the magic, feeling the connective energies and vibrations of the Universe.
I wander artistically. The process of creating these mood boards was like the culmination of the seeds of ideas I have been nurturing and growing for some time now. Though I wander, all of the paths are connected. Like branches growing from the same tree, and nurtured by the same roots, allowing the trunk to thicken and to climb towards the sun, lifting limbs towards the sky.
Art is my prayer, each piece a message simultaneously to and from the Universe, from me to me, from me to you, from you to me… and you see how that goes on? We are all soulmates, connected.
