More Than Art...
Kyle Jackson (°1989, Rochester, United States) creates mixed media artworks, paintings, photos and drawings. By taking daily life as subject matter while finding understanding on the everyday aesthetic of battling severe depression.
Jackson often creates work using creative emotional observations, but these are never permissive. different rules apply than in everyday life and even everyday feelings undergo transubstantiation.
His mixed media artworks sometimes radiate a cold and latent pagentry of abstract beauty . The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the exhibitions, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning. By referencing romanticism, abstract thought, and symbolism, he creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer into different states of thought.
His works are characterised by the use of everyday objects in an atmosphere of learning in which recognition plays an important role. By applying abstraction, he creates work through labour-intensive processes which can be seen explicitly as a personal sacrifice . They are inspired by a nineteenth-century tradition of works. he pulls the viewer into a world of ongoing thought and the interval that articulates the concept of said events. Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the human drama in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in life.
His works are often about contact with bright colors, bullets, pills, architecture and basic living elements. Energy (animals, city life, emotion), space and landscape are examined in less obvious ways and sometimes developed in absurd ways. By emphasising aesthetics, he focuses on the idea of ‘growing’ and more specifically on spaces where anyone can do anything.
His works doesn’t reference recognisable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted the same way he sees life itself. Welcome to Je Vais Bien.
