Los Angeles-based cult artist Richard Jackson consistently uses his mistrust of conventional painting as a gateway to works that straddle the divide between the explicitly civilized and the wildly primordial. Born in 1939, Jackson emerged alongside the Minimal and Conceptual artists of the 1970s with whom he became associated, yet remained distant in terms of approach. Influenced by Abstract Expressionism and action painting, Jackson has built his career over three decades, exploring the limits of painterly practice. This wryly designed monograph fuses Jackson's two passions: art-making and hunting. Using the format of a hunting magazine, it showcases images from recent solo exhibitions at Haswellediger & Co., Nyehaus, Hauser & Wirth and Galerie Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois and includes essays by Paul McCarthy, Bozidar Brazda, Julian Bismuth and Carissa Rodriguez.
