Lisa: We’re thrilled that you have accepted our invitation to be on the judging panel for the Jackson’s Open Painting Prize 2018. Nowadays, the definition of what Painting is and what drawing is are often argued about and contested. What are your definitions of what painting and drawing are and how do you think the two are linked?
Jacqui: I see painting and drawing as being inextricably linked, but ultimately it is the artists who define what drawing and painting mean to them. Drawing Room’s programme has always been informed by what happens in the artist’s studio.
