Local artist Morton Goode Jackson draws upon his award-winning career in graphic design to create stylized, compelling images. His painting focuses on strong graphic portraits infused with the dynamic lighting characteristic of Vermeer, combined with the emotional and haunting structures reminiscent of Modigliani. His work is bold yet intimate, powerful yet personal.
Before devoting himself to painting full-time, he spent 34 years creating celebrated visual communications for some of the most prestigious companies and museums around the world, including The National Gallery of Art, The New York Public Theater, The Phillips Collection, British Telecom, Urban Outfitters, and Marriott. This very successful design career earned him hundreds of national and international awards of excellence including the London International Advertising Awards, the NY Art Directors Club, HOW International Design Annual, a Presidential Design Award, and an induction into the Library of Congress.
