Richard Jackson often gets referred to as a performance painter; and while theres some truth to this, I think its more interesting that he works in and around the gestural properties of paintingoften liberating paint and pigment from the direction of the artists hand entirely. It would be inaccurate to classify him as a digital artist, yet his work uses technology to extend (and often complicate) the limits of what viewers might understand as an organized and balanced composition.
