Jacqueline Rieder Hud is an expressionist painter who takes her inspiration from both literal and metaphorical experiences within the landscape and with animals, wild and domestic. The documentary film “Painting the Wild” was released by Streetlight Cinema of Los Angeles in 2006. Filmmaker Rod Bradley traces the artist’s deep connection with animals, her life story and her creative process.|
"My paintings are fusions of imagery from conscious and unconscious states. They express personal inner growth through cogent manifestations of dreams and wakeful intuitive flashes. As I move through a landscape or work with my ranch animals, there are moments that hold me, encounters which seem to pull me into the rhythm of the universe itself. I have recorded such moments in journals that I have kept for over twenty years. "
