An art record of a courageous woman prevailing over a slow internal combustion that bursts into flames and threatens to destroy her. Jacqueline Rieder Hud s Laundry for Strangers takes you on Psyche's adventures to the underworld, and her return to the light of handmade reality. Analytical psychology provides the stage setting for this tumultuous tale. --Timothy John Tate, Archetypal Psychotherapist
About the Author
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.
Jacqueline and John Hud moved to the Blue Mountain Ranch outside of Bozeman in 1994, after twenty years in Los Angeles. In a sense it was a homecoming, since Rieder Hud s grandmother had homesteaded in northern Montana from Norway and both of her parents were born in that region. It seems a fit for her to be restoring a homestead ranch.
Jacqueline s formal art education began at the University of California at Santa Barbara and culminated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Painting and Drawing at California State University, Long Beach. Over the years of documenting her dreams and journaling, her interest in psychology led her to a series of independent studies at the C.G. Jung Institute in Los Angeles.
Over the last twenty years, Rieder Hud has shown in numerous juried and invitational shows nationally and in Europe, with numerous gallery solo shows throughout the West and in New York. She had a solo show at the Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art, Great Falls, Montana, in the summer of 2007.
A life-long conservationist, Jacqueline s sensibilities about stewardship of the Earth led her to Predator Conservation Alliance, newly named Keystone Conservation, where she sits on the Board of Directors. Every sale of art results in a donation to the group s efforts to conserve habitat and engage the human heart and mind to appreciate the intrinsic value of wild places.
