Sam Jackson is the Foundation Fine Art Pathway Leader at AUB, also a successful painter, he is represented by Charlie Smith Gallery, London and Heike Strelow, Germany.

Sam will be exhibiting in the Volta New York, 2019 Contemporary Art Fair this March, an event that focuses on solo shows of emerging international artists.

Speaking about his show, Sam said: “The forthcoming exhibition titled ‘Chronicles’ is a superb chance to again present a new body of work to the New York art scene and something I am very excited about. To work with my gallery Charlie Smith London and Director Zavier Ellis once again on an international stage surrounded by cutting edge contemporary art practice is inspiring and exciting to show new paintings within this context.”

“This exhibition consists of recent portraits, where Jackson has continued to evolve his practice by either upscaling or adding new visual components. Extra layers of complexity have been introduced including patterning; collage; a broadening of palette; experimenting with new techniques such as fat cap spray painting; and mark making with a router. The result is compelling paintings that express the inherent urgency of the artist.” – Zavier Ellis, Director of Charlie Smith Gallery, London.
