Jack Daws

Jack Daws is a Seattle-based American artist. Working with assisted readymades, mixed media sculpture, and photography, his work addresses a range of socio-political and cultural issues. He lives and works on Vashon Island, Washington. Much of Daws’s work reflects his interest in socio-political issues, particularly those of racial and cultural identity. Some of his most controversial works play on stereotypes of African American, Native American, and Mexican American culture. Seattle Post-Intelligencer art critic, Regina Hackett writes: “In Seattle, no white artist has pushed the edge of racial outrage as clearly as Jack Daws, who is hardwired to go over the line… He’s not expressing hatred or taking a fast ride on any one hot button. All hot buttons are dear to him.”
