“Boundary”
36 x 42" Acrylic
1995

Herb Jackson has had over 150 solo exhibitions in the U.S. and in England, Peru, Portugal and Canada. Critic Donald Kuspit included Herb Jackson's paintings in the first exhibition of contemporary American art presented in the former Soviet Union. His work is in over 100 museum collections. In 1999, Jackson was given the North Carolina Award by the governor: the highest civilian honor bestowed by the state. Herb Jackson's paintings are built up in many layers which are scraped off as they are being applied. The stunning final outcome is the result of a process of exploration and discovery that might be interpreted as metaphor for the experience of life itself.
