Artist Statement
Sandra Jackman "The Forces of Nature" I chose my twelve 14” X 11” pencil drawings from thirty. All are based on observation, memory and invention. All the images relate to the subject “The Forces of Nature”, Mother Nature as well as human nature. Storytelling is reflective of my work in unique books, drawings, paintings, and assemblage. I am using a storytelling device to clarify the connective tissue between the images. For clarity’s sake, I call the connective tissue sections 1-4.  Section 1, “The Walker” and “Two Figures”. This takes place in late 2010 in a windswept region of California. The unprotected figures are caught at the mercy of the elements as the weather changes.  Section 2, “After the Rains 1-4”. I took a car trip in January 2011 (after the rains) to Central California. I traveled past terrain grown wild with vegetation. Threatening looking fissures on hillsides exposed by uprooted trees caused some roads to close. I was excited by this coarse, rocky look and the helter skelter textures of the rain drenched landscape. There was a kind of wonderful havoc that I needed to express in pencil.  

Section 3, “He Drowned I-3” and “She Saw He Drowned 4”. I was on a boat trip in Brazil some years ago when an unfortunate victim of bad weather and choppy seas surfaced alongside my boat. He had fallen from a ferry days before. From time to time, he surfaces in my work.

  Section 4, “He Was Part of the Venice Landscape 1 and 2.”  The place is Venice, California. “He Was Part of the Venice Landscape” You have seen him at the beach He always dressed in layers of dark, ragged weeds He is a force of nature Monolithic and solitary ‘Till he erupts in violent Gales of laughter Or a frenzy of wild gestures. He was here yesterday And today He will be here tomorrow (or someone like him). I lived in California for two months this past winter. My drawings were done before the forces of nature had their way with Japan.
