Robert C. Jackson is a contemporary realist still life painter. Robert explained he enjoys incorporating whimsical and narrative elements into his artwork. He commented, “My goal is to take traditional conceptions and attitudes about still life painting and turn them completely different. If you add those symbolic meanings to these playful paintings you get a completely another sense of it.”
Robert published his first book, Robert C. Jackson Paintings on March 28, 2012. Philip Eliasoph, professor of visual and performing arts at Fairfield University, introduced about Robert’s painting, "The paintings we are about to examine are inescapably a bundle of contradictions, satirical complexities, and witty subterfuge. Essentially, Jackson is a uniquely self-realized painter. His feisty independence is fortified with healthy dosages of non-conforming eccentricity, with a small touch of screwball nuttiness." The foreword by Professor Henry Adams revealed a similar sentiment, "Notably, this is also the sort of strange mix of sensibilities one finds in the best American novelists, such as Mark Twain."
