About

From the beginning, Jacoby’s approach to the canvas has been fearless, following a method akin to the way the subconscious or even unconscious works. She manifests everyday life, positioning and repositioning themes and tableaus – (the dinner table, a child in the vast outdoors, lovers, immersion in water, flight) in ways that allow for exploration of a singular identity, very separate, as a woman and artist. Fears and dreams are codified in scenes with an uncanny precision and power beyond words. These new works by Jacoby represent a leap in the artist’s painterly powers. Flecks of color inhabit the canvases in rhythmic patterns that permeate both the background and the central action of the painting, creating a unified field of energy - a tone that further informs the content of the work. She is able to integrate the figures with their environment by the use of carefully modulated strokes of pure color. In View I , for example, the seated child is both observer and an essential element of nature - not apart from it. In other works, sections of the canvas are sparse and purely abstract, giving an emphasis and heat to the primary action in the painting, whether it is the loving embrace in works like Jacket and Love, or the stark vulnerability and exposure to the elements in the enigmatic Memory.
