Paul Jacobsen, born in Denver in 1976, grew up in a family of artists in a small mountain town in Colorado before moving to Brooklyn. Forgoing a formal art degree, Jacobsen took classes in Florence at Lorenzo De Medici Instituto dell´Arte, studied privately with acclaimed realist and still life painter Daniel Sprick and worked for Artists such as Jeff Koons and Rudolf Stingel.
Typically working with traditional mediums such as oil paint and charcoal, Jacobsen investigates the intersection of civilization and technology. Some distinctive works include his charcoal drawings of black flags in different sizes. Since the 1880s, black flags have been an authoritarian symbol representing the absence of and opposition to the nation state. In his series `Studies in Movements´ Jacobsen illustrates a mark (or stand) for democracy. Although America has shown few signs of Egalitarianism since its beginnings, Jacobsen believes that America has recently added another disgraceful/shameful chapter to its book of history.
He visually portrays this political statement through establishing a moment of silence and mourning for all the hard-fought victories of native, civil, women's and gay rights that are now threatened more than ever, as well as the environmental and labor protections that are already being gravely attacked in current politics. His work provokes and at the same time embodies a memorial.
