is a Melbourne-born artist. He lives and works between Melbourne and Montreal. Well-known for his meticulously detailed watercolours, Jackson Slattery works with found images and staged scenes that are often captured in quick snap shots, with his images offering discrete glimpses of the natural and built environment. He relates distinct moments in time; immobilising movements so that action shots become peculiar and intriguing still lifes. His heavy use of black — a dominant feature in many recent works — is uncommon for the watercolour medium yet is highly arresting. The boldness of this aesthetic choice is indicative of Slattery’s interest in updating the often neglected medium with which he works.
