Ward Jackson, inspired by Piet Mondrian and Josef Albers, and a member of the group of American Abstract Artists, Ward Jackson lived and worked in New York. His reductive palette, shaped canvases and minimal compositions in the 1960s led to his paintings being included alongside those of Jo Baer, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Sol Lewitt, Robert Ryman and Frank Stella in a seminal exhibition at the Kay Mar Gallery that led to the development of Minimalism. His passion for writing and art led to his creation of the publication ART NOW New York in 1969 that featured images and stories of then current work of Jasper Johns, Brice Marden, Louise Bourgeois, Robert Smithson and other contemporary artists.
Ward Jackson exhibited widely in NYC and throughout the United States as well as in exhibitions in Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Spain and Japan. His paintings and drawings can be found in numerous public collections including: The National Museum of American Art Smithsonian, Washington, D.C., Museum of Modern Art, NY, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, N.Y., The Brooklyn Museum of Art, N.Y., San Francisco Museum of Contemporary Art, CA, Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University MA, the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, Richmond, Va., Edward Albee Collection, British Museum, London, and in Germany at the Kunsthalle Bremen, Bremen, the Museum Morsbruch, Leverkusen and the Wilhelm Lehmbruck Museum, Duisberg.
