Rosamund Felsen Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Nancy Jackson. This will be Jackson's sixth show at the gallery, and her first West Coast exhibition in more than 2 years.
Nancy Jackson has long been known for her unencumbered use of material and the intricacy of craft in her work. For this exhibition, Jackson delves deeper, and with more dynamism, into the implications of such a practice, looking intently at how depiction (and its various modalities) is often paralleled by our own experience, one moment deeply intuitive and the next highly reflective. Jackson's work draws influence as much from folk art as from canonical masters, her practice itself alternating between an embodiment of the naive artist and a highly rigorous co-opting of historical output, resulting in an exhibition that is punctuated by moments of both the individuated and communal.
The exhibition takes shape as Jackson installs a series of large-scale, highly intricate, multi-part mobiles which will hang from the rafters in two of our gallery spaces, while the third space will be devoted to Jackson's ultra-detailed drawings, paintings and sculpture.
