Jackson Fine Art presents the exhibition of new works by Erik Madigan Heck, from his much-anticipated new series and accompanying monograph, The Garden. This is the gallery’s second solo exhibition of Heck’s painterly large-scale photographs, following 2018’s Old Future. For The Garden, Heck’s focus turns somewhat inward, photographing his family and studies of the idyllic landscape surrounding their home. Composed over a five-year period, the series intimately explores the birth of the photographer’s two sons and the passing of his beloved mother, juxtaposing these hyper- personal works with more purely aesthetic pursuits — explosions of vibrant color and reimaginings of classical landscapes.
The gallery will have advance signed copies of Erik’s forthcoming monograph, The Garden (Damiani) available in the coming months.
