Patrick Jackson

Los Angeles based artist Patrick Jackson (b.1978) earned his BFA at the San Francisco Art Institute and his MFA at the University of Southern California. Jackson works primarily as a sculptor, creating both discrete objects and immersive installations. On multiple occasions Jackson has presented site-specific projects in his Los Angeles apartment complex, transforming his living space into exhibitions. Literature and theory are also central to his work; his projects are steeped in his cultural consumption.The drawings are selected from Jackson’s sketchbooks. He never took more than a few minutes on these, didn’t think much about them before marker hit paper, and didn’t intend them to be shown. They were just made to get ideas out, which is why Jackson has described them as “close to my subconscious.”
