Jaclyn McConnell

Jaclyn McConnell (b. 1996 Ottawa, Ontario) is a multi-disciplinary artist working primarily in printmaking, oil painting, and new-media. McConnell is currently a BFA candidate at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. She is the photographer and graphic designer for the BFA graduating class exhibition. Her work currently explores themes of fragmentation through juxtaposing various subject matter with differing connotations and origins. Through this contrast the viewer is given a new insight to the imagery placed before them in a dynamic mixed media aesthetic. McConnell is a past assistant photographer at South March Studio, contributor for the Undergraduate Review, and presently a graphic designer for Studio Q. Her work has been exhibited in different venues including Kanata Artist’s Studio Tour, Union Gallery (2016-2018), Print Pulse 30: Travelling Exhibition, Modern Fuel, and Cezanne’s Closet fundraising event. In 2014, she was awarded the Robert Shotton Memorial Entrance Scholarship and Canon Canada and MTV’s True Original Challenge Grand Prize Winner.
