Ariel Jackson is a multi-media artist who works and lives in Brooklyn, NY. She grew up in New Orleans, LA and after experiencing Hurricane Katrina began using her body as a vessel to testify about sociopolitical traumas and situations. She develops characters to create testaments using allegorical abstract language aided by a collage of media and craft materials. Her most commonly used character is 'Confuserella' a Panfrikan who traveled through space to Plastica after the blues came in. On Plastica Confuserella graduated with a degree in finding the blues. Since then Jackson has been documenting her travels and memories. Jackson's work stems from a desire to create a safe space for testaments outside of the mainstream media and create alternate narratives for maneuvering and exploring sociopolitical traumas via group identity, memory, cultural propriety and individualism.
