I am a magician. My work springs from ancient histories and legends, stunning light and colour. Its origins were formed from years living in England, Italy and now Canada. I ask questions. What holds meaning for me? Why? My answers celebrate a personal vision; ideas and images are sorted, researched and stored over time and then put forward out of a desire to commemorate and honour that which is of profound personal value. Much looting takes place within the archives of manuscripts, monuments and great natural spaces, exposing the inner power and beauty that in turn forms the nucleus of a contemporary creation.
“What amazed me the most were Jaqueline Treloar’s beautiful pieces covering the tree. “Baroque Ball”, a collection of tree ornaments, is something to be taken in. The care and precision of each piece comes fully through when looking at them closely.” (Emily Newell, ARTORONTO)
“We were attracted to Jacqueline’s work because of its boldness, ambition and sense of theatricality, and were keen to find out more. She speaks to us about the influence Italy has had on her work, as well as how she cleverly combines painting with textile art.”
Jacqueline Treloar “strives to open up what has been closed in us. She is a diligent housekeeper of the Infinite, making sure her allotted panels of the doors of perception swing to and fro as smoothly as possible.”
