Californian artist, Richard Jackson, is an unconventional painter. You won't find him using a paintbrush, and his canvas is not something you can frame. Indeed If you step into his latest exhibit you might just think that someone had quite literally sneezed paint everywhere. It's on the walls, it's on the floors, it's spattered over sculptures.

Having been influenced by both Abstract Expressionism and Action Art, Jackson has combined the two to form performative paintings. These take the form of lowbrow American pop culture. For example, Copy Room (2014) is an interpretation of the stereotypical office party, where a woman is photocopying her backside after a few too many drinks. Other crude installations include Pain-t (2012), in which a group of mooning boys poop paint from their behinds. Humorous, playful, and creative, Jackson's explosion of paint expresses the lifestyle of a messy society.

New Paintings runs until the 26th July at the Hauser & Wirth Gallery.
