About the Artist
Robert Jackson Harrington creates drawings and sculptural installations from everyday materials that center on the concept of potential. Recent exhibitions include With Regards to Drawing at Lubbock Christian University, Lubbock, Texas and C Wut Stix, at Bill’s Junk in Houston, Texas. Currently he directs the Museum of Pocket Art and is a member of the Center for Experimental Practice and the curatorial collective, Los Outsiders, based in Austin, TX.
“These are the definitions I work with. Drawing, an arrangement of marks on a surface. Painting, an arrangement of paint on a surface. Sculpture, an arrangement of objects in space. Conceptualism, an arrangement of ideas. Arrange, to move and organize (things) into a particular order or position, to give a particular order or position to the parts of (something). Mark, an impression made on something. Using these definitions, we can then arrive at this definition; Art, an arrangement of things. Using mass-produced objects and ordinary materials reconfigured into an art context, I explore themes that include the idea of an objects’ potential and the concepts of what could be versus what is.”
