Deborah Jack, is a visual artist whose work is based in video/sound installation, photography, painting and text. Her current work deals with the nature of memorials, landscape and the environment. Group exhibitions include the current exhibition, Relational Undercurrents: Contemporary Art of the Caribbean Archipelago, at the Museum of Latin American Art in Los Angeles. Upcoming shows include Revival: Contemporary Pattern and Decoration, El Museo del Barrio in New York City. Her work has been exhibited at the 2014 SITE Santa Fe Biennial, Brooklyn Museum, and the Jersey City Museum. Deborah Jack is an Associate Professor of Art at New Jersey City University.

As a multi-media artist she engages a variety of visual and aural strategies for mining sites of cultural memory/present. The resonance of traumatic historical events in nature is at the core of her work. She is intrigued by concept of re-memory, memory as a trigger and as a means for exploring the dismembering of the histories, cultures, traditions, families, and personal memories. Her work seeks to articulate an historical and cultural injury. She is interested in seducing the eye with scenic aspects of landscape and the potential for the betrayal that can come from closer examination of these seemingly “innocent” and “untouched” places/bodies.
