Alan Jacobson

For the past thirty-five years my artistic interest has been drawn to representations of imagined people, landscapes, and abstractions rendered with wood and paint. I create to release images that my mind collects in the course of my daily life and to communicate with the people who see my work. Whatever form these depictions take, they reflect movement across the boundary between my inner and outer worlds, my introspective nature and my other roles of therapist and neuro-scientist.

My figurative paintings frequently depict isolated individuals, sometimes trying to make contact and/or comfort one another. I typically use oil paint and work mainly on plywood sheets, wood planks and MDF board.
