Working mainly in metal Jacky Oliver creates small hand held objects through to large-scale architectural pieces, for commissions, exhibitions and residencies throughout the UK. With a broad and open approach Jacky’s work explores a variety of themes, interrogating the qualities of different techniques and processes to evoke a narrative.

Pollinators: Jacky’s delicate network of steel hexagons evokes a map of the world, supporting enamel panels with statistics pierced through their surface. Jacky aims to raise awareness and promote dialogue about threats to the populations of bees, including recent changes in policies allowing the use of harmful insecticides.

Field to Fork: Drawing inspiration from her family of greengrocers and their appreciation of the importance of seasonal produce, Jacky looks at the provenance of fruit and vegetables that we eat in the context of current environmental challenges: the carbon footprint of  production, transportation and consumption of fresh produce.

Allotment Plots: The structure of this piece references maps of allotments as well as their vernacular architecture greenhouses and sheds. Enamelled panels include drawings made from seeds at various stages of growth and archive documents from London’s Garden Museum.
