Ariel René Jackson

(b.1991) is an American artist raised between New Orleans, LA & Mamou, LA. Jackson received her BFA from The Cooper Union in 2013 and will graduate with an MFA from the University of Texas at Austin Spring 2019. Jackson explores temporal mark-making through the process of transforming relics and symbolic structures. Material remnants of a legacy of farming and black epistemology throughout the African diaspora functions as a guide to sourcing materials and research.
