Power and the PassionAshley Jackson’s Yorkshire Love Affair
Sun 3 - Sat 9 October 2010, 10am - 5pm
Celebrating his 70th Birthday, Jackson returns to the Mall Galleries.
Acclaimed as being the, ‘Turner of the 21st Century’ his dynamic and brooding landscapes capture the atmospheric skies of the Yorkshire Moorland.
Synonymous with Yorkshire his paintings are transcriptions of Mother Nature’s Love letters revealing the relationship between the man and his moor.
He will be unveiling a stunning collection of previously unseen work, for which he has spent his life time chasing the changing light in God’s County, where they may be all season’s in one day, leaving man exposed and open to the elements. No other artist can emulate his technique in such large scale watercolours; there is no camera or trickery just pure skill.
If there is one exhibition not to be missed this year, this is it; it has been over 25years since Jackson had a one man exhibition at the Mall Galleries
As an exclusive to the Mall Galleries, Ashley Jackson will be present throughout the exhibition.
This exhibition is generously supported by Walker Morris.
