Anji Jackson-Main  
'In 2008 I graduated from Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University, with a First Class Honours degree in Fine Art.  Since graduating I have worked as a painter, presenting my first solo exhibition at the New Hall Art Collection in 2009, and as a curator, notably co-curating the post-humus exhibition of the paintings of Pink Floyd founder Syd Barrett, at the Ruskin Gallery in Cambridge, 2008.  I am currently studying for the MFA in Fine Art.'  

In the 70s Anji Jackson-Main studied painting and film making at Sheffield College of Art. Since then she trained as a dancer, teacher and choreographer, founding a dance and performance company and directing several dance theatre shows.

'I am interested in the in-between spaces of movement and time. What happens in the transition between one gesture and the next? What is movement?  How do we get from here to there?  In painting, all the gestures that make up the brush and body strokes on the canvas exist at once simultaneously. This is expressed in a multi-layering of image and pigment.

My paintings are typically built up layer by layer, reduced and built up again. This series of work is exploring the relationship between remembering and the new. The works explore incomplete fragments of vision. Each isolated fragment represents an encapsulation of time, and is linked to memory (the past), but also to the future, in terms of its affect on the viewer and the potential for triggering of remembering in others.'
