Mark Jackson Turns a Breakfast Favorite into Art
“Pop Tarts. We all love them. Don’t be a snob.” - M. Jackson.
In early 2021, Mark Jackson created “True Like Love”, a 6 foot tall cherry Pop Tart made on silver leaf, covered in a glossy-thick layer of epoxy resin. For years now, Mark has been fascinated with Pop Tarts and has always found it interesting to photograph them. “True Like Love” was the first Pop Tart that Mark made into physical art and it was on display at Kips Bay Decorator’s Show House in Palm Beach, 2021. This piece sparked curiosity to create a Pop Tart art series that Mark will be developing. The series will involve new variations of Pop Tarts - some directly from the package and others handmade in the studio as works of sculpture.
