Biography  
Matthew Day Jackson


Brooklyn, New York artist Matthew Day Jackson makes sculptures and drawings using found materials to construct objects that remind us of familiar historical and cultural symbols such as a Viking ship, a chandelier and a War World II tank barrier. The materials in his sculptures and installations force us to question our history, culture and politics.

Matthew Day Jackson earned a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from the University of Washington, Seattle and a Master's degree in Fine Arts from Rutgers University.

Jackson was the artist in residence at the Chinati Foundation in June of 2004.
