Students of Meighen Jackson

All Art is Abstract.  The only question is…to what degree?   If you paint or photograph a very representational image of a 1” square of grass, most viewers will interpret that image as a lot of “abstract”  lines on a canvas.  Conversely, we humans can and will convert almost any line with a circle on top…even a kitchen match…into an image of a human head and torso.   
 
When walking through a gallery,  I often ask myself, am I compelled to look at this painting…am I moved, challenged, intrigued, entertained, or seeing something I’ve never seen before?  Works in this exhibition may do one or all of these things. In so doing they present a very PERSONAL VISION of the world and ourselves.
