Jacqueline Barrett is a Canadian artist who received an MFA (2005) and BFA (2001) in Printmaking from the University of Alberta. She is a Lecturer in Art at Boston University where she teaches Introduction & Advanced Printmaking. The basis of Jacqueline’s work is an ongoing interest in examining the creative possibilities of combining word and image to explore language, emotions and the dynamics of relationships. Her research methodologies include photo-based intaglio, silkscreen and digital print media to create shifting dimensions of words and images. As a result, her prints and works on paper establish unexpected relationships between the text and the images and the spaces in which the text/image is located. These relationships are often enigmatic and result in unusual poetic associations, as well as to a questioning of the ways in which words and images can function. Jacqueline’s work is in public and private collections and has been exhibited nationally and internationally in Canada, United States, Thailand and Germany. She lives with her family in Boston’s vibrant South End neighborhood.
