Each of his pieces starts as
a fully formed vision in his mind, before he begins his work. Then he welds,
hammers, forges, and torch-carves raw materials such as steel, iron, copper,
and wood into fully-formed, passion-driven, functional artworks: A chair with
the wings of a butterfly. A glass table with the colors of fall leaves beneath
its surface. His art is a visionary one, that strives to liberate the human
spirit: A steel sculpture of a woman who gleams with fierce independence and
eroticism. The painted, supple curves of a calla lily flower seeking its blessings
of water and light. Albert Jackson produces sculptures and paintings with
an immediate impact and a lasting poetic resonance. His artwork is steeped
in meanings as diverse as Greek and Native American mythology. Albert Jackson's art cuts across boundaries to appeal
to the universal human spirit – yet each viewer can delight in finding their
own personal truth and emotional meaning in his works.
