Artwork description

Vanessa Jackson appears to take the most formal approach to painting, but her use of geometry and its three dimensional function deny the supposed flatness of modernist space. Her work explores the contradiction of a fully realised space at once pertaining to logic and completeness and uncertainty and unease. The 'curvature' is the deviant from the straight line, whilst making sense in the studio is key to the understanding of representation.

The ornamental and optical play of colour acts both to confirm and confuse our sense of perception, constantly shifting between concrete presence and the ambiguity of space beyond our grasp.
