Artwork description

Renowned for her large-scale abstract paintings Vanessa Jackson uses colour, line and form in ways that play with the viewer’s perception of what they see. Characterised by geometry and flatness, the work evokes a sense of uncertainty – confidently rendered forms are overlaid with marks that appear incomplete. Using a minimal palette, the yellow area of this print is created using a technique known as chine collé whereby delicately fine paper is bonded on to the sheet to create background colour and texture. The black lines are then overprinted using a traditional etching process, with a window of light left behind. Jackson was a student at the Royal College of Art alongside Stephen Farthing and went on to tutor there for 14 years. She subsequently became a senior tutor at the Royal Academy Schools until 2013.
