Oliver Jackson

Oliver Jackson's paintings hold a sense of the inseparability of positive and negative space, figure and ground. His figures exist in intimate relation to their environment, sharing in its continual flux, movement and change. Jackson's paintings convey a rare power and richness and fullness of vision.

Jackson's sculptural oeuvre mixes elegance and toughness, expressionistic effects and a carefully calibrated use of those effects. Whether the point of departure is a chair, a chunk of wood, or a slab of marble, Jackson will inevitably transform it into a surrogate-often complex, subtle and indirect-for the human form.

And his works on paper reveal a masterful command of a variety of media and technical approaches, which the artist employs to create visual effects and complex compositional structures that draw the viewer into a charged and powerful spatial arena.
