Nashville-based artist John Jackson's work explores our obsession with technology, showing how it invades all aspects of our private lives. His paintings, much of which are nudes, show couples who are more focused on the internet than they are on each other.

Jackson came of age in a time before tech was so ubiquitous. Speaking to The Creators Project, he explains, "I was searching for a direction with my work, so I channeled and expressed my frustrations with technology into my art by merging the two."

He continues, "[The series] addresses how our culture is being funneled through technology. The paintings explore the potential irony, distraction, seduction, and alienation that technology renders and how it affects the way we relate and communicate with each other."
