Jacqueline Bishop is known for paintings, drawings and installation that explore the psychological connections between humans and non humans through landscape. Influenced by two decades of traveling to forest fires in the Amazon, staying in her home during Hurricane Katrina and documenting the devastation of the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf Coast she presents a poetical voice that addresses the politicizing of nature, species extinction and eco-political injustice in her work. She studied Art and Philosophy at the University of Kansas, received her BA in painting from the University of New Orleans and an MFA in painting from Tulane University. For years she was Adjunct Professor for Art and the Environment at Loyola University New Orleans and in 2010 taught the course in the Costa Rica Study Abroad Program. She has exhibited or lectured in Europe, Southeast Asia, North and South America. She is the author of “Chico Mendes: Em Memoria: A Tribute on the 10 –Year Anniversary of His Death” which is a collection of years of paintings and testimonials about the Brazilian rubber tapper who was slain by wealthy cattle ranchers. She is a grant recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and Joan Mitchell Foundation. Ms. Bishop resides in New Orleans and is represented by the Arthur Roger Gallery.
