Gina Jacklin's work seeks to unveil the beauty of life unseen from a scientific lens that, together with a Christ-centred perspective, strives to convey that biological forms, have been thoughtfully and purposefully designed. When magnified through a microscope, our seemingly mundane world reveals a magical landscape, teeming with beauty and the strokes of pure genius that allude to the handiwork of a Grand Designer.
Often using micrographs or x-rays as reference material, Gina Jacklin's work offers a window into this mysterious and microscopic dimension. Gina is captivated by the process of translating scientific images into sculptural artworks which strive to capture our wonder and imagination behind the elegance, complexity and intelligent design properties of botanical structures.
"I desire to glorify the Lord through artwork that speaks to the thoughtful design of creation, that from a scientific lens, seeks to highlight the intrinsic purpose and beauty that is evident in all of life, from the smallest of cellular structures. I want to connect those who long to see the world through a different lens, with the beauty of creation, to spark a sense of joy, awe and wonder in their hearts and minds through original fine art."
