Clare Jaque Vasquez is an emerging Aboriginal artist from Gomeroi/Kamilaroi nations.  The artist grew up in both an urban environment in her younger years and then on her Grandmother’s Country in north-west New South Wales in a small country town near the mission and station where her family lived.

Her art gently showcases unique memories and moments from being raised with three generations of Gomeroi/Kamilaroi women under the one roof, navigating the after effects of change.

 

Clare’s works capture stories and weaving practices in a raised textural form leveraging natural and contemporary art tools and to apply texture.  These tools include different natural brushes, fingertips, branches, sticks and palm tree fibres, and are specifically used to connect the works with Country and self.  The artist works in layers to inimitably apply synthetic polymer paint and impasto textural mediums which appear to be etched, embedded and scarred onto the canvas.
