Philip JacksonPhilip Jackson is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of Mississippi in Oxford where he currently teaches and heads the painting program. His work is part of the permanent collections of art museums in Evansville and Fort Wayne, Indiana, Huntsville, Alabama and most recently the Mississippi Arts Commission in Jackson, Mississippi.

His paintings have been featured in a number of premiere magazines, including, Art in America, Southwest Art, American Art Collector, and American Artist Magazine. He has received grants from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation in Montreal, Canada, a two-time recipient of the Mississippi Arts Commission Fellowship, numerous scholarly research grants from The University of Mississippi and most recently was named this year’s fellow of the $15,000 Jane Crater Hiatt Fellowship.

He received his BFA from the Columbus College of Art & Design in Columbus, Ohio and his MFA from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio, and studied abroad at (SACI) Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy.

Working in the established genre of still life, Philip R. Jackson takes a traditional subject and invigorates it with a fresh contemporary vision. Jackson’s paintings are seen through the eyes of another world. Overlooked and commonplace, objects are suspended in a single moment. However, it is in the intimate act of seeing that one can observe an unveiling universe. Bathed in light, the mystery of each object is revealed. The haunting silence of what has happened or the inevitable finish of what is yet to come fills the air with anticipation.
