"Sex, Money and Power" january - march 2013

Born in 1960 in England. Lives and works in London.

Alison Jackson’s work explores the cult of celebrity and its impact on contemporary life. She uses lookalikes to make convincingly realistic photographs of celebrities in their privacy, making up scenes that cannot be witnessed. Likeness becomes real and fantasy touches on the believable. Her work raises question such as “can we believe in what we see?”. Jackson comments on voyeurism and the seductive power of imagery, in a world saturated with visual information. She is a funny and thought-provoking commentator on the burgeoning phenomenon of contemporary celebrity culture.
