Jacki Fewtrell Gobert
Jacki has been a full-time artist since 2009. Prior to this, she worked as an art teacher for almost 30 years. She has held solo exhibitions since 1982 and has been a finalist in numerous art prizes such as the Mosman Art Prize, Hornsby Art Prize, Northern Beaches Art Prize (formerly Warringah Art Prize), Outback Art Prize, Tumut Art Prize, Sydney Morning Herald Art Prize, Adelaide Perry Drawing Prize, North Sydney Art Prize, Kirribilli Art Prize and the Hunters Hill Art Prize. She has also won various art prizes since 1982 and her recent Body of Work is based on her local environment at Brooklyn on the Hawkesbury River as well as travels to Tasmania, South Australia and time spent in Paris. Jacki’s work is literal but she loves to exaggerate line and use of colour. She often depicts the ‘mundane’ and tries to make the viewer see what is often taken for granted. Jacki won First Prize for the SALA 2018 in South Australia for Hollick Estate Winery in Coonawarra with a drawing entitled ‘Cab Sav & corkscrew’. She has also contributed works for the Hornsby RSL WW1 and WW2 commemoration exhibitions in 2017 & 2018.
