Scotting painter Jackie Anderson has produced works of such fragile delicacy, being so faint and stripped down in colour, that they make one slow down to really look at them.  Ethereal and ephemeral forms, overlapping observations and subtle tonal variations are combined with compelling compositions that seem to capture something of the impersonal nature of urban interaction.


I’ve never actually seen any of her work ‘in the flesh’ so to speak, but I would imagine they could be…well, it’s hard to avoid the word ‘haunting’ really.


If you like her work I’d recommend you check out Nicholas Uribe too, specifically his work from a few years ago.




  1. The subtle range of color is amazing and yes they are somewhat haunting.

  2. This portrait also reminds me of one of fellow painters at the Fairfax Gallery, Shaun Ferguson. These something in the facture, and the palette that has a visual rhyme with this image.

  3. The painting of the bath also reminds me of Antonio Lopez Garcia, there’s this beautiful painting of his wife(I guess) in the bath.
