Jocelyn McGregor


Jocelyn McGregor strikes a discordant note using the fragmented female form.

Material has suppressed qualities, aspects that we are not meant to see. They are facilitators for something else. Gravitating towards states of matter – crystallisation, extrusion, decay. Jocelyn’s sculptural installations investigate the discordance between the basic physical elements of the natural world and the development of synthetic materials, media, and the built and virtual environments that shape our daily lives. To find this perpetual confrontation of the synthetic and the natural we have only to look beyond Western, urban service industries to the rural landscape, and to global sites of production and export.
