Item Description


You are bidding on an original Jackson-Collins painting on canvas.

Self-taught and self-made, Mississippi-born Jackson Collins extracts truth from
life and renders it visual. At the age of sixteen, he began his career painting
on the shores of Venice Beach without a penny to his name. Now, as an

Jackson Collins paints from his soul, and his work reflects this
passionate realm of beauty and pain. Employing a system of personal symbolism, a
feverish brush stroke, and broad planes of deep, intense color, Collins conveys

Jackson Collins has exhibited in such diverse locations as the
Alan Goodman Gallery, London, England, Galerie Charles Boutron, St.-Piat,
France, Urban Exposure, Los Angeles, California, and Michelle Konigs Galerie,
Berlin, Germany. His works are also part of the private collections of Brian
Glazer, Jane Smiley, Craig Ponzio, Mr. And Mrs. Peter Young, and Dr. and Mrs.
