This, the first monograph on acclaimed London- and South Wales-based artist Jacqueline Poncelet (b. 1947, Liège, Belgium), surveys 50 years of the artist's practice. Working across diverse media, Poncelet transforms patterns from urban and rural contexts, exploring how fashions play out in the ways humans dress, decorate living spaces, and shape architecture. Having trained in ceramics, Poncelet moved into sculpture, painting, and textiles before turning to public commissions. The publication presents works from different eras, including small-scale ceramics from the 1970s, large, brightly colored paintings and textiles from the 1990s, as well as woven textiles, watercolors, and wallpapers made in the 2020s. The publication, which includes documentation of In the Making, an exhibition by Poncelet at MIMA, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, in 2024, features a foreword by Laura Sillars; an essay by Elinor Morgan; texts by Salena Barry, Claire Doherty, and Penelope Curtis; and an interview by Hettie Judah.
