The works in Jackson’s first solo show in Manhattan include his iconic life-size body prints, blackboard paintings, and the domino sculpture, Ruminations Chair.
In the past year Duron Jackson has been featured in a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum, in Mickalene Thomas’s Better Days installation at Art Basel, and in the AIM Biennial at the Bronx Museum.
Press has included N.Y. Times, Studio Visit, and Modern Painters among others. Holland Cotter referred to Jackson’s Brooklyn Museum show as “a lean, strong, subtle installation”. Christina von Messling wrote “The intense richness of his creative energy is superbly counterbalanced by his refined and sophisticated mind”.
His Fulbright Research Scholarship, African Roots in Contemporary Art Practices in the Diaspora, investigates materials, processes and iconography of Africa in the western hemisphere, with exhibitions in São Paulo and Salvador da Bahia.
Jackson received his Masters of Fine Art in Sculpture from Bard College in 2010, and his Bachelors in Visual Arts from SUNY Empire State College in New York in 2004. Jackson is a New York based artist living in Brooklyn.
