Internationally recognized for combining an irreverent sense of humor and sharp wit with an unconventional approach to painting, Sacramento-born artist Richard Jackson returns to the Crocker for his first local exhibition in more than 30 years. Influenced by Abstract Expressionism and action painting, Jackson draws from a broad visual lexicon that ranges from physiology to hunting and consumerism. In honor of the exhibition Big Ideas: Richard Jackson’s Alleged Paintings, hear from the artist as he speaks about his process, inspirations, and definition of art and art-making as “unusual behavior”.
