Hubert Jackson


Jackson’s recent work deals with the period of American history from its inception throughout the Civil War and in particular the spirits of those who have come and gone but remain anonymous and unaccounted for through war, slavery, poverty or the passage of time. Although they are no longer physically present, their spirits remain with us as they have become one with nature – embodied within the life forms that emerge from the earth. Jackson uses vegetation and artifacts specific to each subject in his mixed media artwork, which he obtains on site or purchases from collectors and relic hunters and then incorporates into the design. “The three dimensional aspects in my creations evoke in me an immediacy and spontaneity which I find compelling in achieving the connection with the subject that I am seeking.”
