JACKSON'S WEBSITE :]
HEY LOOK! ITS ME...
Jackson Farley is a multidisciplinary artist and curator living and working on unceded Gadigal land. His practice intertwines narrative and humour to point out the absurdities of arcahaic power structures and hierarchies. Using digital media, biro pens and ‘self-care’ pencils, Farley’s work is as sentimental as it is a parody, pondering naïvely on art, history, religion and everything in between. With the crudeness of slapstick, schoolboy humour and sexual innuendo, his work speaks to the irony of the now, whilst also conversely, being just as sentimental, heartfelt and self-reflective.
Jackson completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts with First Class Honours at the Sydney College of the Arts in 2017 and was awarded the University Awards for Drawing and Printmedia. He has also studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, USA and was awarded the China Cultural Centre residency in Chengdu, China in 2017. In 2019, he was selected as a finalist in the Fauvette Loureiro Memorial Artists Travel Scholarship Exhibition and in 2018, was selected for the Blake Prize, The Churchie and for Hatched. In 2020, he was chosen to partake in the year long City of Sydney creative live/work tenancy in Darlinghurst.
Jackson is represented by Stanley Street Gallery, Sydney.
