Artist’s Project: Colter Jacobsen


For this project, artist Colter Jacobsen invited our subscribers to submit photographs for a series of “memory drawings.” From the nearly 80 he received, he chose eight, and these double-drawings (one copied directly from its source, the others drawn from memory afterward) appear along with the photographs that inspired them.

Colter Jacobsen’s work has been in solo shows at spaces including the Jack Hanley Gallery in San Francisco, Corvi-Mora in London, and Tibor de Nagy in New York, as well as in many group shows. Jacobsen, a caregiver and driver for the blind, also plays with the bands Coconut and Window Window. He was selected as one of four 2010 SECA Art Awards winners for the Francisco Museum of Modern Art. He is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute.
