Peter Jackson: A Retrospective

Peter Jackson
A Retrospective

March 30 – April 27 2019. 

 

This is the first major retrospective of the paintings and sculptures of the late British artist, Peter Jackson (1930 – 2019).

 

Peter Jackson is our second ‘Invited Artist’.

 

Jackson was one of the last survivors from that generation of artists that studied at Corsham Court Art College in the 1950s and was taught by a celebrated roll call of Artist Tutors including Peter Lanyon, William Scott, Adrian Heath, Peter Poterowski, Anthony Fry, Howard Hodgkin and Terry Frost. Their influences remained (as did their friendship) but Jackson always forged his own path.

 

He was mainly interested in the abstract but also (with varying degrees of engagement), the figure, landscape, prehistoric art and the objets trouvé. He had a life-long fascination with the colour black, maintaining that this isn’t a sombre colour and exists in a huge range of tones and hues. A key technique, his use of very heavy collage was exploited to create a trademark textural, almost relief surface to the canvas.

 

This exhibition aims to show the variety and diversity of this important artist with pieces representing the last 60 years of his work on canvas and paper.

 

Throughout his life, sculpture had always been a crucial part of his oeuvre with both construction and carving. Central to the exhibition will be an installation of his series of helmets and head forms in carved stone, bronze, wood and terracotta.

 

“As can be seen it is the head or helmet that has been my main focus of interest, perhaps due to the ambiguity between the human head and the created functional form, ambiguity being an aspect of art that I have always treasured.” – Peter Jackson 2018
