Jack Dickerson translates seemingly minor everyday events into striking moments in time. He paints what he feels, combining his own unorthodox techniques with traditional ones. Jack's paintings evolve and gradually come to life as a constant library of ideas, images and experiences - both past and present - flow out onto the canvas. This process guides him by continually opening doors to new ideas and nearly always a painting that is much more than the original 'idea'.
Jack Dickerson's work is bold and uplifting--his energetic brushwork and simple compositions emphasizing strong lighting, shadows and reflections. He is constantly learning and searches for better ways to express what he sees and feels. Jack paints every day, in acrylics, standing at his big 4 x 8 foot easel.
Jack's work has appeared in many solo and group exhibitions. His paintings reside in private collections throughout the U.S. and in corporate collections. His work has been published in The Boston Globe, Graphis Magazine, South Shore Living, Better Homes & Gardens, The Patriot Ledger--among dozens of others. Jack's work has been recognized by numerous local and national awards.
He graduated with honors from Rhode Island School of Design and earned his graduate certificate from the Allgemeine Gewerbeschule in Basel, Switzerland. He was also awarded a two year grant from the Ford Foundation.
