Sarah  Jackson

Biography

Artist Sarah Jackson has been creating artwork for over fifty years. Over time, Jackson has created works using a variety of media, while her subject matter and over all essence of expression has unity. Jackson began her career as a sculptor of bronze today she works primarily on computer. The evolution from bronze to computer image has included sculpture with styrofoam, ink drawings, t-shirts, mail art, book art, and xerography. In this exhibit we have chosen a tiny sampling of her work to hint at this evolution. You will have the opportunity to view a large retrospective of Sarah Jackson's work at the AGNS in the fall of 2001.
Sarah Jackson is an artist who continually experiments with new technology. Through the years, she has moved from working with bronze sculptures, drawings, bookworks, photocopier art, to creating her digital paintings with a Macintosh computer. By combining her knowledge of photocopiers, she achieves a personal language with nuances of color, texture and forms in a highly individualized expression.
