Jack Morrocco is a highly collectable Scottish artist. He has a rich artistic heritage and a formal training in one of Scotland’s most respected Art Schools, Duncan of Jordanstone School of Art and Design. After his undergraduate studies and a postgraduate year, Jack earned a highly commended post diploma. He was selected to study at Hospitalfield House, Arbroath during the summer of 1973, under the renowned pop artist Peter Blake. In 1975 he was awarded the Farquhar Reid Travelling Scholarship in 1975 and chose to spend it in Paris and Florence. Because he’s the son of an artist and the nephew of painter Alberto Morrocco, he grew up surrounded by art. This includes the everyday processes involved in creating paintings.
After his scholarship travels to Europe, Jack set up a design studio in Dundee. Although he continued to paint and had work accepted by the annual RGI and RSW exhibitions, the design business was his focus. In 1997 he decided to paint full time. He now works from his studio at home in Fife and on the Cote d’Azur in the South of France.
Because Jack paints a number of different subjects, there is no one ‘style’ that easily defines him. His paintings connect his vision and his valuing of the timeless quality of the subjects he is painting. His vision and his goal is to create a relationship with the viewer by creating a feeling of ‘being there’. Jack achieves this heightened sense of ‘being there’ through an increasing economy of brushwork. Every single brushstroke counts and gives life and character to its subject. Every mark matters.
