b. 1991 -
Hayden Jackson (b.1991) is an emerging artist living and working in the town of Seaspray, on the south-eastern coast of Victoria, Australia. Jackson uses litres of acrylic and enamel paint to create loosely painted portraits of immense presence and power. Across such a large surface Jackson is able to manipulate and control the movement of the paint, tilting and manoeuvring the large stretchers physically to convey line and depth.
Hayden Jackson was the recent winner of the Richard (Dick) Bishop Emerging Art Prize at the Latrobe Regional Gallery. Part of his award Jackson was able to utilise one of the Morwell Galleries to present a selection of new work titled Politics of Paint.
“The objective of my art is to explore the qualities of paint and its versatility as a medium. I aim to create a world within a world, to expose the viewer to a large array of pastel colours and bleeding varnishes. The paintings are highly reflective of light. I want the viewer to be lost in the size and depth of the heavily layered works, the layering of paints and varnish will display 3 dimensionally on the 2 dimensional canvases. Through viewing the works the audience should feel somewhat engulfed by a sensory overload of colour.”
Piermarq is proud to be representing Hayden Jackson as a gallery and agent. His new work featured in our Summer 2016 Group show titled Rodeo Sideshow, and we look forward to presenting his second solo exhibition Flux in August 2017.
