Time of the Dream
21 November 2014 - 22 January 2015The exhibition ‘Time of the Dream’ will present new paintings and hand coloured prints by Andrzej Jackowski; striking in their simplicity, these works engage with both personal memory and the wider historical domain. His work often carries themes of dispossession and melancholy drawn from a childhood spent in a refugee camp. Poetry is an abiding source of inspiration for Jackowski. “I've been quite consistent in using everyday objects like tables and beds in ordinary rooms, in a limited, austere repertoire . . . there's less detail and more of an evocation of place through colour, pattern and rhythm.” Andrzej Jackowski With an empathy towards a broad range of essentially poetic work, Jackowski cites Giotto, Balthus, Carlo Carra and Rousseau alongside more contemporary influences that include Louise Bourgeois, Anselm Kiefer and R.B. Kitaj.
