Neon whirls and electric sparks dominate these vibrant works of art inspired by Dr. Seuss, M.C. Escher, comic books and countless geometric designs and patterns. Fascinated by the magical results of a long exposure and the manipulation of various light sources, photographer Jeremy Jackson (aka Tacky) works almost exclusively in light painting.
All of Jackson’s elaborate, kaleidoscopic images are constructed in camera without the use of Photoshop, except for an occasional rotation or crop. For this method, light is the brush and the environment is the canvas determined by space and time. Jackson sees unlimited potential in this medium. He asserts, “The techniques are endless. The world is your canvas. Anything you can imagine can be painted a million different ways.”
