“The daydreamer is a recurring subject of mine. I'm drawn to the quiet moment where the internal and external life blur together. I use color and light to give vibrancy to that stillness.” — Jackson Joyce

About the Artist

File 83242

Jackson Joyce (b. 1994) is a Brooklyn, New York-based artist who seeks to paint a world where things look the way they feel. Pulling inspiration from his life growing up in the south, Jackson’s paintings tell nostalgic and personal stories of past, present and future. Often exaggerating proportions and color to convey off-kilter narratives, Jackson’s paintings occupy an imaginative world all their own.
