Brisbane Artsworkers Collective
Exploring attention to detail- amplification, intensification, magnification.
An integral part of the artistic process is sharpening one’s senses to perceive
the intricacies of life- the small, the banal, the overlooked,
the under-appreciated, the misunderstood.By becoming aware of diversity
in individuals and the environment the artist is able to hone in on the lesser
muse and bring to light the hidden richness of the world around us.

Genevieve Camille Jackson
[Emergent properties are properties of wholes that are not present in their parts]
When paintings are presented together in a gallery, does the exhibition have properties not present
in the individual works?
When visual art is combined with poetry, prose, sound and music,do new art forms emerge?
Genevieve considers the act of creation to be a potent effector of catharsis. The practice of art facilitates the exorcism of powerful emotions, whether they are tangible or boil up from the depths of the subconscious during the artistic process.
