City Paper is not for tourists
There’s nothing in Louis Jacobson‘s pick about “All Night Flight” at the Civilian Art Projects to suggest that artist Erick Jackson is a stoner. And yet, and yet:
“In making “All Night Flight,” a series of several dozen pencil-on-paper drawings, Erick Jackson plumbed the imagery of his childhood, from cheesy TV tableaux to a basket of tortilla chips, incongruously shown with ketchup and mustard squeeze bottles. Jackson’s drawing style is uneven and is showcased most effectively in his Munch-like landscapes, which are dreamy, stylized, and boldly colored: a nuclear apocalypse in ochre hues; figures lingering in a verdant nocturne; and the Golden Gate Bridge in sickly green, set against an ominous, red-yellow sky.”
Read Jacobson‘s entire pick and then head over to Civilian Art Projects and decide for yourself if Jackson’s work evokes a THC wonderland.
WED.-SAT. FROM NOON-6 P.M., THROUGH JUNE 6, AT CIVILIAN ART PROJECTS, 406 7TH ST NW. FREE. (202) 347-0022.
