ABOUT THE ARTIST

Vincent Jackson (b. 1961) is one of the most prolific and longest practicing artists at Creativity Explored, a studio-based collective in San Francisco that partners with developmentally disabled artists to celebrate and nurture the creative potential in all of us. Jackson is known for his large-scale figurative oil pastels. His thick, defining lines break the human form into geometric shapes filled with a heavy impasto of layered colors arranged with Jackson’s masterful sense of harmony. The resulting mask-­like works can be viewed as a contemporary renewal of traditional African and Oceanic folk art imagery.

"My faces are my way of telling a story rather than writing."
–Vincent Jackson
