Ok, I know it's so damn corny to quote somebody just to describe yourself, let alone Confucius, but this quote says all about my relationship with Widewalls, so forgive me for doing this: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Am I forgiven?

Bill Jacklin is a British artist who first worked with abstraction, just to change his interest toward studies of light and movement, so he began to work with figuration. The abstract tendencies of Jacklin are present in his figurative works, as his crowded city landscapes often appear as patterns of light and dark, making them simultaneously remote and familiar.
