Carling Jackson is an artist so she can 'paint the change I wish to see in the world'
See her compete in this week's episode of Crash Gallery
Vancouver painter Carling Jackson uses her hyper-realistic portraiture style to explore themes of systemic oppression and marginalization. Carling says her goal with her work "is to make you feel what words cannot describe by bringing to life emotion, passion, love, pain, and beauty."
I believe art is important and it has the ability to tell stories and tell the truth. Ireally love being able to create a piece and make a difference."- Carling Jackson
