Daniel Jackson lives and works in the Claymont, Delaware home he shares with his wife and son. Painting in oil and using multiple glazes in a manner similar to the Dutch Masters, his style and technique result in luminescent images that nod to the past yet pave new roads with their contemporary sensibility.
Jackson gained recognition as a portraitist during the 1990’s, completing numerous paintings for clients across the country. His recent focus on still-life works has allowed him to further develop his unique realistic style.
Jackson’s detailed paintings, portrayed in a naturalistic style, are deceptively simple yet remain true to the subject. With an almost uncanny attention to realism, he does not eliminate the flaws in the objects he depicts, and is thus able to capture the fragility of his subject and comment on the transitory nature of life.
Through his mastery of subtle changes of light and color, Jackson successfully creates another world in his intricate depiction of everyday objects.
