The relationship between graphic art and music is typified by the work and career of Trevor Jackson – at once art director, graphic designer, moving image maker and music producer.
A new exhibition of Jackson’s photographic and video studies, Nowhere, promises to explore ‘a subtle side of Jackson’s visual personality’, organisers say.
Jackson is best known for making his own music and applying a striking graphic style to album art – including a notorious series of Soulwax records which possess a magic eye holographic quality.
Nowhere is far more nuanced though as Jackson explores artistic subtleties which have influenced his work. ‘Graphic Design is essentially problem solving; you’re responding to a brief and reflecting the clients personality and opinions,’ says Jackson.
He adds, ‘As much as I still enjoy that process, this new work is expressive and at times cathartic, something that has little place in much of my work.’
Photographic night sky images will be hung alongside graphically manipulated photographic images, revealing a simplicity not yet seen in Jackson’s portfolio.
Nowhere runs from 4-26 March at KK Outlet, 42 Hoxton Square, N1 6PB
