About Kevin Jackson

 
 
  • Biography
    The drawn mark is my starting point whether it is in printmaking, painting or digital form, and whether the idea is conceptual, abstract or figuratively expressed. Drawing gives the visual freedom of 2 dimensions to precisely express thought, emotion and idea.
    My area of study as a student was printmaking specialising in copperplate engraving, mezzotint and etching.  In my professional life, I trained up and worked as a fine art printer and platemaker before my prints of the patterns in architecture and fabrics began to find currency. 
    The wonderment of the digital revolution has expanded the potential for artists in all areas, and finding the continuing place for hand processes in a screen dominated visual environment has become a major factor underpinning my work.
