About Tom Jackson




I strive to make relevant, memorable American images that make people think. I am interested in reflecting the mood and feeling of our era.

These compositions often combine two or more images into a single artwork. I combine images because I want enough information to engage the viewer in looking for connections between images, and to incite the viewer to search their own past and to think about common images in a different way. I strive for ambiguity to increase the number of viewer interpretations.

When one thinks about what appeals to Americans today in movies, politics, celebrities, food, etc., people seem to be attracted to - and repelled by images at the same time. My sometimes voyeuristic, broken-narrative compositions reflect America's channel-changing attention span and state of mind.
