Jo Jackson: History: The Complete Drawings


In 389 Valencia Jo Jackson will be exhibiting paintings and drawings on paper as well as screening a new video.  Jackson is known for her flat paintings that draw from sociopolitical icons.  The format of the paintings mimic silk screening and stenciling techniques to layer the surfaces of the paintings as well as the icons within – thereby creating a non-liner and simultaneous narrative.  Her videos also reference these same techniques – the works animated with the same psychedelic pink, blue and silver palette that is her signature.  Jackson has shown widely, both nationally and in Europe.  She has most recently shown at Baronian Francey in Brussels, the Renaissance Society in Chicago and her work is part of the nationally touring exhibition Beautiful Losers.
