As one of the leading figurative painters of his generation, the work of Andrzej Jackowski is mostly biographical, based on his early childhood memories, recollections of a family history in Poland and the feelings of alienation and enclosure that these experiences roused. Born to Polish parents, the first eleven years of Jackowski's life were spent in a post-war refugee camp, and The Remembered Present delves into the resulting themes of alienation, family, childhood and nationality that are ever-present in his work.

Using powerful, insistent images from his past he explores ideas of human memory and psyche both on a personal and more collective level. As such, Jackowski's paintings and drawings have come to be imbued with some of the defining imagery of modern European history, reflecting a generations' feeling towards concentration camps, war and the displacement of populations. The Remembered Present is the first profile on his hugely intriguing artist and includes essays by Gabriel Josopovici, Timothy Hyman and Professor Michael Tucker.
