Exhibition - Big Ideas Richard Jackson’s Alleged Paintings

Tuesday, Aug 20, 2019 at 10:00am

Crocker Art Museum
216 O Street
Sacramento, CA 95814

Richard Jackson (born 1939) is well known for combining a playful sense of humor and sharp wit with an unconventional approach to painting. Influenced by Abstract Expressionism and action painting, he meticulously engineers sculptural machines that he activates, causing violent eruptions or seeping trickles of paint. The liquid pigments—often comically meant to suggest bodily fluids—are spurted, splattered, and sprayed on gallery walls, pedestals, and floors. Jackson also works in neon, paper, and canvas. He draws from a broad visual lexicon, which includes domestic environments, universal human functions and activities, and what he sees as hallmarks of American life, such as hunting and sports as well as consumerism and addiction to oil. Through what he describes as his alleged paintings, Jackson questions traditions in the contemporary art world.
