Artist Statement

Graduating from London College of Communication, University of the Arts London, in July 2015, Jackson has exhibited in America, London and Austria. Using large-scale prints to showcase the detail and sense of the reality of the issues that have affected Jackson’s life. Jackson’s work is autobiographical, and uses her work as a therapy to trauma that she has repressed. Her work looks into intimacy, loss and psychology is the backbone to her work. She uses analogue and alternative processes, and prints all her work herself in her darkroom, this gives her the utter most control in every stage of creating and developing her work. As her work is her feelings and her thoughts on issues that affect our society, her work is constantly changing, and a developmental process of her thoughts and emotions, she constantly creates and re creates. After a major trauma in 2014 and being diagnosed with PTSD, Jackson explores the fragility of the human body, and what it is like to be a twenty-something in a society that constantly is unaccepting and denying you of the truth.
