About the Artwork:

“This piece is an exploration of life that comes from death and is mostly inspired by fungi, mold, and decaying matter. I typically mash up sexualized female humanoid figures with other creatures to create familiar but alien forms which play with ideas of modern womanhood. In this particular instance the mother gives birth to fertilized eggs while her body is already in a state of decay, physically connected and feeding the world around her.” – Jacqueline Gallagher

About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

Painter of Zombies and the Disturbed. Or Disturbed Zombie Painter… I forget which. These figures are contradictions, beautiful and grotesque at the same time. They float through their worlds driven by craving, vanity, and addiction, caught in moments of stiff poses and comedic indulgence. They put themselves on display for the world as their bodies and minds slowly decay. This is how I see myself and most everyone around me. We are the Dead Living, but we sure do look good.

Born in 1984 and raised on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 2009. Since then, I’ve exhibited nationally numerous times with 3 solo and many more group shows. In 2015 I relocated to my new home in Portland, Oregon.
