Paintings, Drawings and Prints
5 April - 17 May 2013
Jackowski's paintings plumb the depths of experience, in some cases his own experiences of dispossession, distant recollections of a family history in Poland and the first eleven years of his life spent in a refugee camp. These, along with photograph albums and other ephemera are the raw materials of his images. This exploration of personal and collective memory is at the root of his research into identities and cultures as handed on and explored through stories and images. "For some years now I have been concerned to articulate through my paintings the inner life, to evoke reverie and to find significant images. The work moves and animates somewhere between a kind of vigilant dreaming and being wide-awake. These images are poetic metaphors of something real, intimate and mysterious in our lives."
