Artist Talk

Vanessa Jackson RA - Discussing her life and practice

Vanessa Jackson RA will be giving a talk on her work at The Essential School of Painting followed by a question and answer session.

"Vanessa Jackson, on first reading, appears to take the most formal approach to painting, but her use of geometry and its three dimensional function deny the supposed flatness of modernist space. Jackson’s work explores the contradiction of a fully realised space at once pertaining to logic and completeness and uncertainty and unease.

The ornamental and optical play of colour acts to both confirm and confuse our sense of perception, constantly shifting between concrete presence and the ambiguity of space beyond our grasp. Jackson destabilises the very ‘ground’ we most desire, a sense of security and belonging."
