May You Find the Sublime

In their second solo show in Santa Fe, Jacks shared an innovative series of ink and mixed media paintings on wood in the show “Learning About Light.” Drawing inspiration from the natural and the mechanical, this work assembles a unique vocabulary of patterns, textures, and color to create an abstracted language for the residue of seasons, synesthesia, and hope.
