A combination of slick and battered surfaces reside in the irregular panels of Jackson’s work. Sharp angled triangular and rectangular forms make up the pictorial space of these shaped paintings, disorientating the viewer with their lack of any conventional composition. The viewer navigates this space uneasily or pleasurably, moving between illusional and physical areas of the work. Jackson references several craft processes from the history of art, exploiting the sculptural tradition of chiselling and the language of abstraction in the form of drips and ‘Richter squeegee marks’ to achieve fragments of painterly experience.
