DISCOVERING TOP EMERGING ARTISTS

INTRO is a pop-up art exhibition that discovers works from top emerging artists. Each day we’ll announce a new artist participating in INTRO before the exhibition opening on March 23.


ALAN JACKSON

What inspires you to create?

Curiosity

What story does your collective work tell?

That I have a short attention span

Do you have a motto or advice that you as an artist live by?

“Look again”

Why is it important for you as an artist to be living in Charleston?

Warm weather, open spaces, beautiful buildings

 

Alan Jackson is originally from Savannah, GA. He graduated from the University of Florida School of Architecture in 1975 and has lived in Charleston since 1979. He is a resident studio artist at Redux Contemporary Art Center and past member of the Redux Board of Directors. His artistic efforts have developed out of an interest in deconstructing architectural drafting and rendering techniques and reassembling them into simply composed and precisely rendered non-representational works that contain elements of drafting and painting. His work has been shown at the Corrigan Gallery, Mitchell Hill Gallery, Charleston Supported Arts, Charleston Arts Festival, The Venue Inn, Jericho Arts, and City Gallery at Waterfront Park. He has collaborated with Hirona Matsuda on several site-specific installations.

He is currently represented by The George Gallery at 50 Bogard St.
