Richard Jackson New Paintings, Hauser & Wirth London, North Gallery

Richard Jackson New Paintings, Hauser & Wirth London, North Gallery, until 26th July 2014

Jackson has been an important figure in American Contemporary Art since the 1970s and he still continues to imbue his works with humour and perhaps as with ‘Pain-t’ (2012) in this show a sense of crudeness.

He certainly doesn’t use paint in the conventional sense but rather as something to be splattered and sprayed over his installations using ‘painting machines’ made up of hoses and pipes that when activated cover the work and the surrounding areas with paint. It certainly works very well!
