Jacqueline Desmet – Artist
Born in 1959 in Gent, Belgium. Jacqueline Desmet is professionally active for more than 25 years with art. Those acquainted with Jacqueline’s work recognise the joy of life and touch of humor within each piece. Mirrored expression and emotion are displayed. She makes no images but illustrates each sculpture in simplicity.
The first years of her carreer, Jacqueline worked predominantly with ceramics but gradually bronze, glass and porcelain also claims an important place in her work.
The ecstasy of an image that gradually grows in my hands and comes to life gives me wings. The picture in my head is already finished before I start with clay or wax. I rarely draw. I always think in 3 dimensions. What fascinates me is that the perfect imperfections in every creature, human or animal are present, the vulnerable personality, each with its own distinctive qualities and narrow edges. I love working with colour, it may be very apparent. Other images demand quieter accents. It
just depends on how I communicate with the sculpture to eventually finish its form. The process of producing every sculpture gives me a lot of joy. I wish you the same pleasure and happiness “
