Ronald Jackson said of his work, “masks have two dual purposes; to hide/conceal or project an ideal. … When dealing with portraiture I’m looking for the viewer to self-reflect, to have an inner reflection, [that is] facilitated by the painting, or the portrait that they are looking at. With the floral, foliage, flowers on the masks it’s a symbol for me of presenting yourself in a nonthreatening way, wishing the viewer to see you as desirable.”
