Biography

Matthew Day Jackson creates all-encompassing works in a wide range of media that make connections between seemingly disparate themes and narratives, from Impressionist painting to the surface of the moon; art history to rap music; nuclear testing to paranormal activity. Jackson’s work also addresses his theory of the "Horriful,” the belief that everything one does has the potential to evoke both beauty and horror at the same time. In Jackson’s mixed-media sculptures, installations and assemblages, history does not follow a linear progression, but exists in and alongside the present.
