Jacqueline de Jong @ Pippy Houldsworth Gallery

21 January 2022 - 12 March 2022

This exhibition of previously unseen works by Jacqueline de Jong, marks the first opportunity to see the complete group of the artist’s drawings related to her Upstairs-Downstairs paintings from the mid 1980’s, a series of works on paper that is central to her wider oeuvre.

In this collection, each drawing consists of bold, primary acrylic paint and thick black charcoal line-work used to delineate monstrous, hybrid figures, set within a multitude of backgrounds, some representing claustrophobic interiors, or sea- and landscapes, and others devoid of any setting.   A key common pictorial trope that defines the series is the presence of a central staircase, echoing the one found in the location it was commissioned for, and which gave the series its suggestive title
