Robert Jackson has been living in the Huon Valley for three years.  He is a musician with a 40 year career, who comes from a family tradition of visual art.  He is a painter of landscapes, real and imagined, and likes to explore the boundary between realism and abstraction.  The Southern Tasmanian topography and climate have provided the impetus for his latest “Ghost Trees” series, evoking mist in the forests and a faint sense of melancholy.  In 2020 he won the Geeveston Art Show Outstanding Achievement award for his painting of Adamson’s Peak.
