New Artist Spotlight: Kathleen Finlay and Jean-Pierre Jacquet

Every week, UGallery releases new art from our current artists and welcomes new artists to the community. We love seeing what each new week will bring. Say “Hello” to Kathleen Finlay and Jean-Pierre Jacquet. These are UGallery’s newest artists! Read on below to learn a little bit more about their work.

Kathleen Finlay. Toronto, Canada.

Kathleen Finlay collects relics. With the stop of a shutter, Kathleen captures the magic of moments. Her inspirations and imagination drives her pristine Polaroids. While a portrait and lifestyle photographer by day, Kathleen treats each of her art prints with her own personalized style to turn the stock images into something spectacular.

Jean-Pierre Jacquet. Greenwich, Connecticut.

There’s something familiar about Jean-Pierre Jacquet’s work. Perhaps it’s his use of social icons and drama that makes his paintings so recognizable. With exaggerated lighting and subjects that appear frozen in time, Jean-Pierre stages cinematic compositions. He says, “My paintings are narrative. They are a mix of stereotypes and clichés inspired by noir movies and literature, channelling private memories and universal gestures and creating a sense of déjà vu.”
