Veronica Jackson’s artwork stems from the critical examination of visual culture. As an artist she records, interprets, and makes aware the complexities in which humans exist and affect their social surroundings. As an architect and interpretive designer she creatively solves problems within virtual and built environments. Her visual art practice is a combination of past professional disciplines, present lived experiences, and the cache of contemporary and historic research accumulated. Jackson’s text-based and autobiographical work visualizes her racialized and gendered experience in America while illuminating the portrayal, perception, and legacy of Black women in popular media both past and present.
