With skeletons fashioned from metal grids and gnarled wood, small floor sculptures ranging from a pyramid to a lifesize skull, and a bedraggled spacesuit jammed against the wall by a towering plank, Jackson leavens death with material spirituality. A beautiful black Brâncusi-esque monolith rises like a sylph from a marbled slab, which resembles a satellite view of a riverbed and resonates with the title: As Seen From Outerspace.
