Jacque Rochester paints in oils in a range of scale from 7 by 12 feet large to 6 by 10 inches small. Her memorable paintings evoke the mystery of an introspection so unflinching, as to contain the universal. She received her BFA and MFA from the Slade School in London, England, and also studied at the Skowhegan School in Maine, and Carnegie-Mellon University. She received a MacDowell Fellowship in 1983 and won the Charles Fox Purchase Prize at the Farnsworth Museum, Rockland, Maine, in 1980. She has shown at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, the University of Maine at Machias, Allport Gallery in San Francisco, the Farnsworth Art Museum, and Bowdoin College in Maine, the New York Studio School, the International Drawing Center, N3 Project Space, and Side Show, all in Brooklyn, NY.
