Artist’s Statement: “My central motive when creating is to free myself from preconception and the tyranny of Meaning, i.e. the human impulse to categorize. I believe that painting should not merely express the artist but should ideally also allow the viewer to derive several unique interpretations and reactions whilst simultaneously freeing that viewer from the perceived obligation to discover the artist’s original intent; something that often even the artist does not or can not know. In short, Art says as much about the viewer as the it does about the Artist.”

Bio: Born on March 23, 1979 in Camaiore, a small town near the coast of the Tuscan province of Lucca in northern Italy, Luke Jackson’s family lived in the house that his father, renowned artist Harry Jackson, built in 1954. Luke’s high school education took place in Cody, Wyoming, Seattle, Washington, and Bath, Maine. He did his college foundation studies in Florence, Italy at S.A.C.I. in 1998 and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts at UWE Bristol, England in 2002. In Bristol, Luke studied for several years under his mentor, Terence Wilson Fletcher. Luke has been living and working in New York since July 2004.
