Hubert Jackson was born in 1943 in Culpeper, Virginia. He began a correspondence course in commercial art during high school and went on to formally study painting, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, and photography. Jackson earned his Bachelors in Fine Arts Education at Virginia State University in 1965.
After graduation, he moved to Washington D.C. In 1971 he earned his Master's degree in painting from Howard University. In the early '70s, he participated in the historical national movement of community-based mural projects under the advisement of Hughie Lee-Smith.
In 1999 Jackson retired from 34 years of teaching art in the Washington, D.C. public schools and settled in Colonial Beach, Virginia. In 2004 he attended the Corcoran School of Art. Jackson has exhibited extensively. His work is in a number of private collections in the U.S. and has been shown in foreign countries such as Lesotho, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea, and New Guinea through the Artist in Embassies program.
As an artist, I am inspired by the spiritual connection and the ever-changing and unpredictable qualities of nature found in all of the various regions I have called home. My paintings feature highly textured multicolored planes with an emphasis on the interplay between light and dark.
Whether my work is non-objective or representative - or a blend of both, the creative spirit within me remains the same. When I paint, I feel a certain spirituality and energy and a need to express them in a way that leaves a positive and lasting impression.
Led By A Child
"Led By A Child" is a part of the lyrics to the song, "Peace In The Valley", my dad sung in church when I was growing up in Culpeper, Virginia. "Peace In The Valley" was also sung by Red Foley, "The bear will be gentle and the wolf will be tame, and the lion shall lay down by the lamb...and the peace from the wild will be led by a child, and I'll be changed from the creature that I am."
