Dan Jackson’s work examines photography’s role in and impact on art history; challenging the viewer’s perception of truth and beauty and blurring the lines between the authentic and the imagined.
His recent series champions the idea that photography doesn’t have to be bound by subject matter or narrative. It advocates for photography’s place among other art forms that explore abstraction and surrealism. Through the use of colour and shape Jackson seeks to emphasize expression and disentangle the photo process from documentation and reality.
His work hangs in homes, offices, public spaces and galleries across Canada as well as in Beijing, Shanghai, New York and San Francisco.
Dan Jackson was born in Vancouver Canada where he graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 1995. In 2000 Jackson founded Studio Seven-thirty, a full service studio and gallery space located in downtown Vancouver.
