Frank Jackson at Boston University

  • Boston University, Room 346, 3rd Floor 808 Commonwealth Ave Boston, MA (map)

The recent work by New England-based artist Frank Jackson shifts between raw, heavily pigmented paintings exploring the materiality and alchemy of his materials, to delicate works on paper suggesting maps of imagined terrains. Through the language of abstraction, Jackson addresses the question of what constitutes a landscape by describing certain sites as an emotional and intellectual state created by memory as much as a physical place to be experienced. Since receiving his MFA from University of California Davis in 1990, Jackson's work has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions. He has taught and lectured extensively with positions at Williams College, Rhode Island School of Design, and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.
