How close is too close to stand before an image? Because I want to get close enough to absorb the light radiating from this breathtaking photograph! Neon clouds of tulle glow against the contrasting deep, blue sky, while the warm reflection of the billowing fabric mimics the last rays from the setting sun across the beach. This mischievous photograph is full of rewards for those that want to step in and have a closer look!

Thomas Jackson explains that 2020 was the year he "tried to harness the wind," and that the Wind was, "the force that transformed my installations from lifeless fabric to living things." We often think about the wind as a destructive force, but the Wind has the ability to help things move that otherwise couldn't.

In collaboration with the wind, photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce 
a NEW image by the artist Thomas Jackson!

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Jackson grew up in Providence, Rhode Island. After earning a B.A. in History from the College of Wooster, he spent his early career in New York City working in book publishing, then as an editor and writer at Forbes Life magazine. An interest in photography books eventually led him to pick up a camera, shooting Garry Winogrand-inspired street scenes, then landscapes, and finally the installation work he does today. A self-taught artist (with the exception of a number of classes at the International Center of Photography in New York), Jackson has pioneered a unique working process that combines landscape photography, sculpture, and kinetic art. His work has been shown widely, including at The Photography Show (AIPAD) in New York, the Center for Contemporary Arts in Sante Fe, and the Bolinas Museum in Bolinas, CA. Jackson was named one of the Critical Mass Top 50 in 2012, won the “installation/still-life” category of PDN’s The Curator award in 2013, and earned second place in CENTER's Curator's Choice Award in 2014.

Travel back in time to the origin of the project, and watch the 2015 video in which photo-eye Gallery was honored to have Jackson deliver a pre-celebration gallery talk on his exhibition Emergent Behavior. During this talk, Jackson discusses the project's progression over time, its symbolic relationship with both sculpture and installation, and the future directions within his practice. 

Follow Thomas on Instagram for behind-the-scenes footage, like the videos below! 

In this first video, Thomas takes a meter reading near his 4x5 camera, and we get to catch a glimpse of the support system used to suspend his ephemeral sculptures.

Last week, Thomas was featured on the Pantone Instagram page. In this clip, he talks a little bit about his new work and process while on location!
