Through the use of imagery, colour and composition, Jacinda Bayne’s signature semi-abstract style creates a striking visual language evoking a sense of place. Born in New Zealand, Jacinda moved to Perth in 2003 and travels extensively with her art. Her work is held within public and private collections in countries around the world including Australia, New Zealand, China, Singapore and Scotland.
There is a recurring theme of landscape in her work with the use of colour as a visual language which makes a strong impact. This is achieved by her preferred medium of oil paint. This is because of the intensity of colour and light that is achieved through numerous layers of glazes. Beginning with thin washes of colour, followed by a process of building up of more opaque layers to reflect what is beneath. Through this process, there is a continual removal and addition of medium until she comes to a place of contentment and resolution. Jacinda describes herself as an emotive colourist, producing work that creates escapism not just for herself, but also for the viewer.
