Jocelyn West brings her stunning collages to the Lauderdale House Lower Gallery this February, with the title piece inspired by her father...

Jocelyn on her upcoming exhibition:

"One of the pieces in this show is entitled ‘Moon Over Chengdu.‘ It is a tribute to a very cherished person, the memory of whom, however, is painful. I honour and salute in this piece, with free and colourful expression, a person who experienced a sudden and violent death. It gives me joy to be able to continue to celebrate my once-in-a-lifetime encounter with him. Collage had anyway become a deeply cathartic and meaningful form of work for me - the catalyst was the death of my father, a painter, 8 years ago. I sometimes feel it has become a way to continue the conversation with him.

I was not schooled in the visual arts, although surrounded by them at home in my childhood and youth. The visual arts must certainly have permeated my consciousness in different ways. However, I am the product of a disciplined classical music training. Initially a performer, I have also become a holistic teacher of music.
