Jackie Gorring

I make relief prints sculpture and drawings . I focus on the ordinary stuff of life and remain open to experiences which  influence and inform my work. Recent prints are large figures of the lovely folk of Allendale which is my present home. On my walks I observe the rituals and habits of people and notice there homes, yards and pets and farm animals, all of which translate onto paper. I like to use humour and text . Past works are of my travels in Asia and artist residencies in Nepal and India. These cultures are so crowded so overwhelming that I focus on the simple things ie .signage, little offerings, food .
