Jacqueline Bishop
American, born 1955




One of the critically recognized “Visionary Imagists” of the contemporary American South, the New Orleans artist grew up in the Kansas City area (born in Long Beach, CA).  Bishop studied at the University of Kansas before receiving her BA from the University of New Orleans and an MFA from Tulane University. She has also taught at Loyola University and Tulane University.

Bishop’s paintings and collage reflect her environmental activism, landscapes and ecological commentaries about nature, human impact, and species extinction, work influenced by her travel to third world countries, Latin American forests, Louisiana swamps and polluted Gulf shores.

Bishop’s work is in the Arkansas Arts Center, Detroit Institute of Arts, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, New Orleans Museum of Art and numerous other institutions.  Grants include the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and Joan Mitchell Foundation.

”Field Guide ” (2008), a semi-permanent 660-foot site-specific installation at the Milne Boys Home in New Orleans, received national attention.  Paintings by Bishop were included in “The Female Gaze: Women Artists Making Their World,” an exhibition/catalog organized by the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2012.  A one-person exhibition of paintings is scheduled for late 2015 at the Arthur Roger Gallery in New Orleans.

Zanatta Editions has collaborated with Bishop on four projects since 2010 to produce a large lithograph, a linocut, an archival pigment print and an extensive group of monotypes.
