"abstract, colorful contemporary painting with multicultural and mystical references"
Jackie Tileston's paintings are heterotopic spaces in which recombinant strategies and nomadic thinking create complex images that investigate the contemporary sublime and states of being. Tileston spent her childhood as an itinerant “Third Culture Kid”, living in the Philippines, India, England, and France, before moving to the US. She has a B.A. from Yale University and an MFA in Painting from Indiana University. The artist currently lives in Philadelphia, and teaches at the University of Pennsylvania.
