Maz Jackson

Maz Jackson has spent her life with her family, drawing and painting in East Anglia. The regions landscape and its people enrich her imagery which can be interpreted in many ways and relate to many cultures across the globe. Her award-winning work continues to be exhibited and be collected by galleries, museums and private collections across Europe, Japan, China, USA and Mexico.

Egg tempera has had less restoration than any other medium in art history. Using fifteenth century techniques of Cennino d’Andrea Cennini, imagery is worked in tempera comprised of ground mineral pigments mixed with egg yolk and distilled water. Small, layered brush strokes are laid down on gessoed oak panels between gilded shapes of 24 carat gold leaf. Much time passes between each process. Many drawings of thoughts and ideas form stimuli for the paintings, some also become series of prints, artist’s books, installations and scrolls.“ I have a deep interest in traditions of practice, in colour, line, mark-making and edge. Imagery springs from anything that excites: communication, laughter, touch, tension, flight, landscape, the spaces between and things sacred.”
