“Meagan Jacobs is a rarity. Rare in the subtlety of her colour and rare in her
soulful and concrete commitment to landscape. Composed of strong
interlocking forms, her work is meditative, both tightly knit and unpredictably
expansive. “It’s strange” she admits “to fit the whole of the desert into the
small square of a painting. Looking out into this amazing vista, how do you
compress it? I guess my discipline is to distil. What is physically available
becomes a template for the infinite.
The influence of mountains and boulders lends a replete quality to her
paintings. Each piece locks boldly into place. The sharp contrasts of colour
work like tectonic plates, thrusting landforms from their ancient roosts,
presenting an earth that is volatile and alive. Wedding bare expanses of
colour to pockets of intricate pattern, the impact is tactile. While most of the
paintings are not massive in scale they are immersive. A potent yield of so
many years in wild places”.
When Meagan isn’t out in the desert you will find her painting in the attic
studio, one of Miltons oldest buildings.
