Richard Jackson

'Perfect curves and a hidden point of balance...'

Meet Richard Jackson

35 years of thoughtful development bring you the confident and challenging sculptures of Richard Jackson. Throughout this time he has travelled widely recording images and impressions of his experiences, as well as working in studios and studying in the USA, Denmark and UK. His formal education was at West Surrey College of Art and Design, graduating with a BA (Hons), Three Dimensional Design – Glass in 1989. Richard has an extensive international exhibition profile, with recent exhibitions including ‘European Prize for Applied Arts’, Belgium and Ireland, ‘A Thread of Light’, Taipei, Taiwan, ‘GLASS Work by Contemporary Artists’, Canary Wharf Arts, London, and ‘Reflection’ at Salisbury Cathedral, UK. His work can be found in notable collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, the National Museums of Scotland and MAVA, Madrid.

About the work

An impression, a question, an idea, these are always, the starting points for Richard Jackson’s work. He records images and impressions of his experiences, using drawing, writing and photography. Working with words, the title for the piece emerges, with modelling and drawing the form emerges. Complex volumes, fine edges and points, perfect curves, a hidden point of balance, come together to create a moment of pure expression. The form is the signifier, the layers of mark making provide a language, challenging the boundaries between surface and internal volume. Notational, gestural, rhythmically textural, a few large calligraphic strokes, all inform a history of memories and lives, both past and yet to be played out. The resulting work expresses his findings and raises new questions.
