Jacqueline Hurley’s War Poppy Collection is her tribute to our Armed Forces and a remembrance to all those fallen and injured in past campaigns. She paints to evoke emotion, reflection and remembrance.
Although Jacqueline’s paintings depict war, she brings an element and sense of peace to her work, this being what we all hope for and what lives have been sacrificed for. She paints from her heart using the stark redness of the worldwide symbol of remembrance – the scarlet corn poppy; to create contrast against gritty impasto, impressionistic landscapes. All her paintings feature silhouettes which often allow her images to become more personal and sentimental to her audience. Jacqueline’s military poppy paintings have quickly become extremely popular and well received since she started painting in October 2014. They have touched the hearts and emotions of many, keeping the importance of remembrance in the forefront of people’s minds.
Jacqueline recently felt honoured to be invited to exhibit the 24 piece War Poppy Collection at The Royal Albert Hall in London, for The Festival of Remembrance 2015.
