Adrian Jackman sees geometry all around him. The lines and curves and angles that form much of the constructed modern world are, for Jackman, ready-made sketches that he can extract, mix and re-form to create his energetic paintings. The delineation begins with photography, and the artist sees his work as exploring the interface between the two media. He sources images from whatever crosses his path, often posters, advertisements or his own snapshots, and subjects have ranged from Earth seen from space to a pair of bookends.(Warwick Brown, 2016)
Adrian Jackman (MFA, Elam School of Fine Arts, 1997) has exhibited widely throughout New Zealand. His work is held in public, private and corporate collections across New Zealand and abroad. Born in Te Kopuru to a family with links to Whanganui, he now lives in the Wairarapa. He is represented by NKB Gallery in Auckland.
