Jackson at Creativity Explored and a god returns to Sicily


Wonderful show at Creativity Explored - work by Vincent Jackson - bold graphics, striking colors.

"Creativity Explored announces the inaugural solo exhibition of Vincent Jackson, who at age 52 is one of the most prolific and longest-practicing artists at the studio. For nearly 30 years – as long as Creativity Explored has been in existence –Jackson has worked in the studio five days a week, creating large-scale, brightly colored, intense and soulful portraits in oil pastels and other media that break the human form into geometric shapes. The resulting mask-like works can be viewed as a contemporary renewal of traditional African and Oceanic folk art imagery that has entranced art collectors around the world."
