Jacki Baxter

Statement

Jacki Baxter worked as a food stylist in the advertising industry, preparing, cooking and presenting food for photography in films, commercials and editorials. The composition, colours, shapes and textures and the crockery, utensils and props used in her food photography have resurfaced as a strong influence on her work. Her starting point is that everyday domestic items connect with us on a powerful, subconscious level. Her work is loosely based within the still life genre and aims to present the ordinary in such a way that we are invited to reasses our values and reactions to everyday objects.
