Artists who use letterform… Robert C. Jackson…

Robert C. Jackson is perhaps best known for his use of old crates with easily recognizable names of soda pops. He finds them at antique flea markets and the like. He is very creative and uses balloon animals or apples and sometimes even toys in his whimsical still life adventures rather than using people.

Mr. Jackson was born in North Carolina in 1964 and graduated from college with a degree in electrical engineering working for Motorola for 5 years after finishing school. He then quit engineering and worked as an associate pastor in Maryland for 6 years. He gave up this vocation in 1997 turned to painting full time and has been in exhibitions from coast to coast.

Please visit his own website and if you visit Denver check him out at Gallery 1261 (street address) on Delaware a few blocks away from the Museum.

keep learning and painting!
