The body language is the focus in the art work of Philip Jackson. In spite of the mask and cloak the viewer can see whether the wearer is male or female, happy or sad, aggressive or passive by simply interpreting the body language. His figures seemingly grow out of the ground, the texture resembles tree bark, rock or a lava flow. As the eye moves up the sculpture, the finish becomes gentler and more delicately worked, culminating in the essence of the figure: hands and mask as expression of character, attitude and emotion.
